Serge Najjar - Beirut
Serge Najjar captures abstract architectural images featuring human figures in the urban environment of his hometown of Beirut. He skilfully makes use of shadow and light in geometric, minimalist images in which a lone person often appears, either as a static observer among the architecture or actively traversing the frame. His photographic style is arresting due to its clean lines, deep shadows, and sharp angles. Each image in this series offers a glimpse into the remarkably geometric urbanism of the Lebanese capital, showing a revitalised and modernised city of surprising depth and nuance. An extensive conversation with Najjar about his work is also included in the monograph.
