Paris AT BAR

Paris Petridis have been traveling around Lebanon, capturing the country's contradictions with a focus on materialism versus religion. He ventured from north to south, capturing portraits, landscapes and social contrasts.

Traversing a variety of photographic genres and operational modes, photographer Paris Petridis follows an essayistic logic composing images which reflect the marks left by existence, by movement and by conflict, to a present that is anything but resolved.
