Myriam Boulos (B. 1992) graduated with a master’s degree in photography from the Academie Libanaise des Beaux-Arts in 2015. She has taken part in both 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 is a mix of documentary and personal research.
“NIGHTSHIFT focuses on parties that take place in industrial places in Beirut. These venues gather social bubbles of my generation that stand against Beirut’s mainstream bling. I followed young women who appear all at once strong and fragile, determined, and vulnerable. Like me, these women are constantly changing in a society that is also 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.”
