“From the beginning of Western speculation about the Orient, the one thing the orient could not do was to represent itself. Evidence of the Orient was credible only after it had passed through and been made firm by the refining fire of the Orientalist’s work.”
― Edward W. Said, Orientalism
L Nour Editions is a non-profit publisher, specializing in limited edition photography books, authored by photographers and artists from the Middle-East and the diaspora.
We publish books in opposition and in resistance to imperialism, colonialism, capitalism and to address issues of postcolonial reconstruction, indigenous land rights, ecological injustice, patriarchy, racism, workers rights, class struggle and inequality.
L Nour Editions was conceived to address structural injustices in representation and image making, when artists of color are systemically excluded from the hierarchies of book production in the West.
Our interest is to support political, theoretical and poetic works.
