000000|FFFFFF Decoding is a photographic and poetic book that depicts the story of life across twenty-two countries with images captured over a span of twelve years. Decoding is not about perfect shots and polished prose but a reality check! Attempting to unlock the code of life with images and words, Lina beckons the very purpose of human existence. Has digital innovation progressed human development? Has the speed of the "Age of Information" expedited bringing more love to earthlings? With strong imagery accompanied by little to say, Decoding provokes one's curiosity. It contrasts similar moments lived by different people on opposite sides of the globe. It intentionally goads the reader to reflect on the state of human condition while guiding them to the realization that "although we are different, we are one." Decoding's ultimate purpose is to deliver the message of compassion and respect to oneself, fellow humans and hosting earth. The secret ingredient remains love.

Lina Farra was born in Beirut and grew up during the Lebanese war. This taught her to appreciate beauty and recognize flaws. Throughout her journey, she has lived in Vienna, New York, Washington, DC, and more recently the United Arab Emirates. In so doing, she absorbed the cultures of each place. Vienna influenced her taste, New York challenged her imagination, Washington fed her intellect, and Dubai shored her up with the East. Lina believes in “clarity versus clutter,” in design “less is better,” in business “simplify to exemplify.” In accepting the yin and the yang as well as the ebb and the flow of life is a confirmation that equilibrium is a movement and not a point. Nothing is always right or wrong. Just keep moving. MBA, Fuqua School of Business, DUKE University Professional Photography, Washington School of Photography BBA, American University of Beirut
