Palmyra, the Other Side

Stone witnesses

By  Guillermo Abril and Carlos Spottorno

This is the first comics reportage on Drawing the Times that isn’t made with drawings but with photographs. Photography literary means drawing with light, so for once we thought that for once we can make an exception. This story is about the historical site Palmyra in Syria, that was destroyed by IS. Guillermo Abril and Carlos Spottorno went there to find out what was left of it. The story was originally made for Süddeutsche Zeitng-magazine and El País Semanal. It is nominated for the European Press Prize 2019 in the category Innovation.
