EventBeirut Photomed 2017: Giulio Rimondi, Beirut by Night
Beirut is not—or rather is no longer—a beautiful city. Not, at least, in the way one might say that Paris or Rome are beautiful. Even people fascinated by the Lebanese capital bemoan its destruction, first by the war, then by unbridled redevelopment in the neighborhoods that made it so charming until the 1970s.
EventBeirut Photomed 2017: Nick Hannes, Fake Sirens and Real Shipwrecks
Ulysses once took a long trip through the Mediterranean. From 2010 to 2014, Nick Hannes followed in his wake. Instead of sirens, he only met silicone-stuffed bimbos with fake eyelashes and heartshaped red plastic pasties. The age of heroic navigation is long gone.
EventBeirut Photomed 2017 : Clara Abi Nader, Driving the car

EventPhotofairs San Francisco, What is Photography Now?

EventClassic Photographs Los Angeles : Mmm, mmm, good
Classic Photographs Los Angeles is the comfort food of photography fairs: warm and satisfying, a kinder, gentler throwback to the hotel fairs of the early 1980’s. The Unseen Eye was there to get out of New York and to take a look, do a walkthrough and book signing. He had a yummy time.
