Roadtrip To #NEWPALMYRA /// Awareness for Culture Heritage


Roadtrip to #NEWPALMYRA is an ongoing project where I explore Google Street View, to find the various location in the world called Palmyra. Travelling online to these places, I wanted to show that Palmyra is more than just a city in Syria - both antique and modern - it belongs to Culture and it is endangered.

If Palmyra is a part of our global cultural heritage, it's also a part our everyday lives. There are cities called Palmyra in almost all the States in the US, there is a street called Palmyra in some Busy-Megalopolis or some Lost-Somewhereshire, or a even an island, a camping area, or a zoo. To raise awareness everyone is invited to use #NEWPALMYRA on Instagram and on Twitter.
