Bio­gra­fie

Born in Bei­rut in 1992, Myri­am Bou­los gra­dua­ted with a mas­ter degree in pho­to­gra­phy from the Aca­de­mie Liba­nai­se des Beaux Arts in 2015. She took part in both natio­nal and inter­na­tio­nal collec­ti­ve exhi­bi­ti­ons, inclu­ding Pho­to­med, Bei­rut Art Fair, Ber­lin Pho­to­Week, Mashreq to Maghreb (Dres­den, Ger­ma­ny), Bey­ond bounda­ries (New York), C’est Bey­routh (Paris) and 3ème bien­na­le des pho­to­gra­phes du mon­de ara­be (Paris). She recei­ved the Byb­los Bank Award for Pho­to­gra­phy in 2014, which lead to her first solo exhi­bi­ti­on at the Byb­los Bank in April 2015. Her second solo exhi­bi­ti­on took place at the French insti­tu­te of Leba­non in 2019.
Myri­am uses her came­ra to ques­ti­on the city, its peop­le, and her place among them. Her pho­to seri­es are a mix of docu­men­ta­ry and per­so­nal rese­arch. https://www.lensculture.com/myriam-boulos
