Lara Zankoul is a Lebanese conceptual photographer that first entered the photography scene in 2008. Graduating from the American University of Beirut with a Masters in Economics, Zankoul turned to photography as a way to escape the everyday life of a cubicle in which she worked her first full-time job.
She has been present at several local and international exhibitions such as the 2011 Women’s Art Exhibition (Lebanon) and the 2013 edition of the Festival Photomed (South of France). She has also won an award in the 2011 Shabab Ayyam Photography Competition.
"To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place...."
“My compositions are contemporary fairytales that explore the charm and mystery of the human psyche. Whimsical and playful, they represent an attempt to invent new worlds, to push against the boundaries of our reality, and escape the monotony of everyday life.”
