New Homes in Israel and the Occupied Territories by Efrat Shvily 
Beirut is a Magnificent City, Synoptic Pictures by Paola Yacoub / Michel Lasserre. 

Efrat Shvily's New Homes in Israel and the Occupied Territories is a series of black-and-white photographs of houses and neighbourhoods made between 1992 and 1998. The series arose in reaction to the large number of new settlements that were realized in Israel in the 1990s, as a means to occupy territory. 
Yacoub/Lasserre's Beirut is a Magnificent City. Synoptic Pictures is produced by Fundació Antoni Tŕpies, Barcelona as part of the Támass-series. In this book Yacoub / Lasserre focus on "the expressiveness of territories" and their aesthetical and political implications in Lebanon today.
