Finding Pharos (Hitta Faros)

"The legends, mythologies and etymologies surrounding the ancient wonder of Pharos lighthouse in Alexandria, Egypt are at the heart of what I aim to explore as a Mejan resident. The remnants of the lighthouse have recently been discovered by divers – an UNESCO report estimates that 3000 artifacts are submerged in Alexandria’s Eastern Harbor. I will spend several months in Alexandria documenting this ancient wonder from different vantage points while meeting with the archaeologists, filmmakers and tour guides who have played a key role in the rediscovery of the lighthouse’s remains."
