Stvdio El Sham :: MMX-MMXV is the first photographic exhibition showcasing the collaborative work between Lebanese photographer Tarek Moukaddem and Palestinian designer Omarivs Ioseph Filivs Dinæ. An experiment with dress and photography, Stvdio El Sham takes inspiration from the photographic studio of generations past and present; as a space to explore the marriage of performance and photography. Unlike the romantic and nostalgic photos of ladnscape, cities and places now lost to time, colonialsim, revolutions, war and dispossession, the Studio has forever been a place of trascience, where the imagination can make or unmake realities.

In partnership with Nour Festival
