THE LEBANESE PORTRAIT
Self-initiated project reviving the Lebanese beauty of a Golden Era
Be it a photo of a mom, mother in law, a dear friend or a cousin, the purpose is one, reviving the Lebanese beauties of the golden era. This project is a personal initiation to celebrate Mother's Day artistically.
REVIVING THE LEBANESE BEAUTY
I reached a point in Beirut where I can see a fading culture that is fast disappearing.
The Lebanese portrait is not just using past style photos but instead adapting them to show my take onportraiture & pop art.
It is a project that document, in a true sense of black & white, patterns and colors. I used photos from the past for pure aesthetic pleasure & as a focal reference point that triggers memories or historical awareness.
This items gets its best success for the Lebanese Mother's Day
