Half broken hearted, half in love
2010, Lebanon. Photography series, Large format 1m 50 cm x 2 m
The point of departure begins with a strategy I of play. documented my neighbors and relatives in Doweir with the intention of questioning notions associated with posing for the camera, and what it means to be viewed and later analyzed by an audience. I interrogate the usual representation done in documentary photography in the Middle East, which most often functions as a plea for sympathy rather than a statement of conditions. The final result takes on a mystical aura torn between comedy and religion.
You are here for a reason | The night between Ali and I | A glance and I thought it was a greeting
La chose commence ici | Flying fence | Preferring the fleeting happiness on earth
Half broken hearted half in love | The connivance of watching Birds
You know who I am | Oum in three movements | Besides the sea | Friction
58 Degrees | Anticipation of a disappearance | Inheritance | The south is back
