Cedric Bardawil’s photo essay documents Beirut’s Sporting Club, a social hotspot that has remained largely unchanged since it opened in 1953. The clientele is unique in its diversity: sunbathing students mingle with pensioners who come to play cards by the water each day. Bardawil documented the minimal architecture and its inhabitants over the course of six days.
