Where photo manipulation software enables us to endlessly manipulate and recreate images, it begs questions about the authenticity and originality of photographic art. As an answer Lara seeks a purely analog approach to build the surreal life-size stages she envisions; she compiles and directs the image in real life, perfecting every detail manually. The camera is only used to eternalise the scene.
Lara Zankoul’s dream-like images are one of its kind and keep on touching and inspiring many people. Therefore we are happy to announce a limited edition of 50 prints of the artist's most iconic and respected works: The Unseen. Printed in 60x60cm on Hahnemuhle Paper and signed by the artist.
Photographer 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.
