Beirut Photo
A Week of Photography in Beirut

The health crisis has had a severe impact on the world of photography that has already been facing structural difficulties for a very long time. This is coupled with the economic crisis and the lack of platforms that promote photographers and the sale of their works in Lebanon.

 

In light of this, the Beirut Center of Photography will launch the week of photography in Beirut on November 20 till 28, 2021, under the title of “Beirut Photo.” It is a fun and educational event open to the public, which provides an opportunity for the photographic world of Lebanon to shine through its wealth and creativity.

 

During 8 days, throughout the program the public is invited to attend round tables and workshops to think about photography. Far from labelling and coming up with theories, the event is mainly aimed at providing a possibility to understand and question the different typologies of photographic practices. During the first edition, visitors will also be capable of benefitting from a varied program including conferences and workshops as well as the “Photo Fair”, which will take place at Souk El Tayeb (Mar Mikhael) on November 27 and 28, 2021, where 20 to 30 photographers are invited to display a selection of their works and books.

 

An unprecedented occasion to come & meet the artists, support them, and purchase one or more shots. A percentage of the sales made will go to the BCP and SOURA to ensure the continuation of their work to support Lebanese photography.
