Foreign Correspondents Added to the “Stamps of the Syrian Revolution” Project

Syria Today reports that many young artists from that country are turning to the Internet for their exhibition space.

One such project appearing on Facebook is the creation of mock postage “stamps” that range from a photo of the University of Allepo to a commemoration of International Women’s Day.

Included in the stamps are foreign correspondents who have covered events in Syria, including Remi Ochlik and Marie Colvin, who were killed by government shelling in Homs as well as journalist Edith Bouvier, who was wounded in the same town.

The artist(s) Facebook page describes the project this way:

Only 1.5cm x 2.5cm in size, the revolution’s stamps are the smallest documents that honour people and cities that had profound and remarkable effect on the course of the Syrian revolution

A Slideshare presentation of some of the stamps, set to music, is also on display.
