“All of the beauty that surrounds us, it's kind of like stepping back in the past and trying to imagine what was there before.”Lebanon’s age-old abandoned mansions – like this one – have been left to decay.But British photographer James Kerwin still sees their charm and magnificence, from the building's tall yet cracked windows, its etched ceilings and withered rooftops.“Even without the furniture you could imagine it was a beautiful house, beautiful features, fixtures, fittings, all of this."He’s been roaming Lebanon for days, capturing traditional old houses from north to south.This mansion is located in one of Beirut's antique districts."So now we are at the Basta district of Beirut, and it's an amazing old house that we are in, one of the most ruined houses I think I have ever photographed, my first ever location actually here in Lebanon to shoot. Stunning kind of house, also lots of details left especially in the ceiling areas, different bedrooms and rooms, and the main hall room which is typical of what you would see across Lebanon, triple arcades, beautiful ceilings, colours and this is just exactly what I love to shoot." Kerwim previously captured ruins in a variety of places, including in countries of the former Soviet Union, the Middle East, and South East Asia.He hopes to publish a book soon featuring Lebanon's abandoned traditional houses.Although abandoned for years, many of Beirut's old structures are now gathering attention after a blast shattered countless homes and buildings last year."Because of the focus on architecture over the last one year really, just under a year, because of what happened in Beirut, people got their mind switched on architecture in this country at the minute, and I think it's really a positive thing. I think it's a step going forward that might help Lebanon.// It would be great if some of them weren't in this kind condition, or even turn some of the best ones, turn them into an open house where they are preserved to a point where they are not dangerous anymore and people can view them or see them, maybe a museum kind of thing."

No Davos in Asia this year. After twice postponing its summit of world leaders in Singapore, the World Economic Forum cancelled its 2021 annual meeting altogether on Monday. The Swiss-based organization blamed the cancellation on the pandemic, pointing to the uncertain travel outlook, the varying speeds of vaccination rollout, and what it called “tragic circumstances unfolding across geographies.” Every year, a who's who of the global elite - government leaders, CEOs, celebrities and the heads of civil society converge in the Swiss Alps to discuss economic, environmental, social and technological issues. The pandemic situation in Europe had forced it to move the summit from its usual home in the picturesque wintry Swiss town of Davos to sultry Singapore. The WEF’s big meeting was originally scheduled for mid-May in Singapore but pushed back to August. The Asian financial capital has in recent days imposed some of the tightest restrictions since it exited a lockdown last year. The next summit will instead take place in the first half of next year. It was due to return to Davos next January. But the organization said on Monday an assessment of the situation later this summer will determine its location and date.
