New York Fashion Week Diary

Tuesday, February 23, 2016 | News

It was 12 to 16 ºF degrees some days of the last Fashion Week in New York. Most people in the street walked around clumsily wearing several woolen layers and a mask of pain and disbelief on their faces. Looking at the photos you’d never guess. The colorful jackets of editors, bloggers and designers heading to the shows are open, the snow boots replaced by high heels and bare skin. 19-year-old models looking like nymphs walk above the crowd without showing the slightest sign of discomfort, carrying a magnetic aura that makes it impossible to stop staring at them. 

Shopping makes me nervous, I can’t remember the name of a single celebrity and I’m just a spectator, a child who doesn’t completely get what’s going on. What I find fascinating is the performance aspect of fashion, the theater of it, where every part of the organism behind the scenes spins at an exhausting speed, hiding tension and sacrifice, in order to cast the nonchalant, slow-motion spell that penetrates into people’s dreams.

Egg Theater

Monday, February 1, 2016 | News

Interior of the Egg theater, Downtown Beirut. The Egg used to be one the first and biggest cinemas in Lebanon, designed by architect Philippe Karam in 1965. Partially destroyed during the Lebanese civil war, the Egg is still a symbol of the country's heritage, and citizens have been trying to oppose its demolition that would open the space to development projects in the area. The photo is part of the exhibition Heritage of Emotions, opening on February 6th at Galerie Nikki Diana Marquardt in Paris, curated by Lara Saab

Miziara, the strangest village in Northern Lebanon

Friday, January 22, 2016 | News

Happy to see a story I shot in Miziara on Sette today!
Miziara is a quiet Christian village in the hills of Northern Lebanon. In the second half of the 19thCentury a great starvation pushed many to leave, giving life to a wave of emigration that started as a means of survival and ended up, especially when directed towards Brazil and Nigeria, as a way to make fortune. Within a few decades Miziarans were coming back to Lebanon as kings. The phenomenon took an extravagant turn in the 70’s, when many citizens started to build spectacular houses in the shape of planes, pyramids, Greek temples, and other kitsch structures that fitted their whims.
This fashion persists in the present day. The scattered pattern of construction sites and flamboyant buildings creates a surreal panorama for the tiny village, which in turn became a touristic curiosity for locals and foreigners.
