Myriam Boulos is a Lebanese documentary photographer and artist. Her work has been published in Vogue, Time, and Vanity Fair, among others. She has also participated in numerous international artistic exhibitions.
Myriam graduated with a master’s degree in photography from the Academie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts in 2015. She has participated in national and international collective exhibitions, including two solo exhibitions. Myriam uses her camera to question the city, its people, and her place among them. Her photo series are mixes of documentary and personal research.
Her project, NIGHTSHIFT, focuses on parties in industrial places in Beirut. These venues gather social bubbles of my generation that stand against Beirut’s mainstream bling-bling.
“I followed young women who appeared all at once strong and fragile, determined and vulnerable. Like me, these women are constantly changing in a society undergoing permanent evolution. This project questions the place of women in a patriarchal capitalist society where self-discovery, self-preservation, and resistance come in different forms.”
