Lost Strange Things: On not finding home is a monograph with images from the photographic series of the same title. The book assembles 116 photographs, many family photos and documents culled from the artist's personal collection, a prologue by Rayya Badran and an essay by Bariaa Mourad.

In The Cost for Love We Are Not Willing to Pay, the artist, writer and poet Etel Adnan relates her relationship with the many places she settled in. She relocated to California from Beirut, and in this exile she wrote: “during the first years there, I carried within me a feeling of a deep uprootedness”.
(Also) Tanya Traboulsi’s photographs draw links between her two homes. /.../   (she) remains at a remove from her objects of affection. The characters portrayed in the artist’s portraits evoke an ambivalence in their postures, their gaze elusively facing outward. They stand and sit awkwardly as if to translate the juxtapositional nature of the portraits. We see the uprootedness evoked by Adnan in the stiffness of the postures /.../ (Rayya Badran)
