Interested in the treatment of thematic images through the historical, political and social, co-founded in 1997, the Fondation Arabe pour l'image, whose primary purpose is to collect, restore, preserve and study the artistic, commercial and popular photographic heritage in his country besieged by war, as well as in all Arab countries.

Zaatari's work is inseparable from the cultural and political background of the geographical setting, making one of the vertebral axis of his work is his personal memoir, the Palestinian presence in Lebanon, the impact of Syrian control, the struggles between different political factions in his own country, or the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 1982.
