Photo Forum Beirut holds first session
Zico House and Photo-Festivals are thrilled to launch the first session of Photo Forum Beirut on the 19th January 2010.
Photo Forum is an evening event offering and promoting a critical space within the photography community in Beirut.
Once a month, established and emerging photographers will have the opportunity to project and discuss their work with their peers and specialists in a public environment at Zico House.
Everyone is welcome to attend, get involved in the discussion and discover new bodies of work.
Every month, Photo Forum Beirut at Zico House will also invite a local or visiting host to speak about a specific issue related to photography practice.
For the first session, Photo Forum Beirut will host a special screening of Cia de Foto's artwork "Caixa de Sapato". The screening will be followed by a short presentation of the concept of photo collective by Yasmina Reggad.
Cia de Foto is a photo collective launched in 2003 and based in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Yasmina Reggad is a London-based curator, founder and director of the not-for-profit organization Photo-Festivals.
