"There are some things that bombs and fighting just can’t kill," writes Joseph Eid, a Beirut-based photographer.
"Like Mohammed Anis and his determination to live, and to begin anew in the ruins that are today his hometown of Aleppo. Even if his home is quite literally a pile of debris. Even if much of what he had treasured -- from his beloved collection of vintage American cars to his trusty pipe -- is today destroyed, mangled, broken. Even if the only thing around him that still works is an old gramophone that he cranks by hand."
