City in portraits – Solidere Annual Report

November 12, 2012

I just received the Solidere annual report!

For this year’s edition, 70 individuals who live or work in the center of Beirut, were chosen to be photographed by Spanish photographer Miguel Ángel Sánchez. People from all industries: music, architecture, TV, food, cooking, etc… were chosen to be part of this project. I was one of them! Yes!!!! I was so lucky to be featured in this catalog as the accessory and textile designer at Starch in Saifi.

The photoshoot took place last April. We were asked to bring items that characterize our profession. The fisherman got fish, the florist flowers, the textile designer scarves. etc… The portraits were photographed in a black box created at the Beirut Souks with special studio lights.

The catalog is out, and the photos look gorgeous! You can check them below.

Thank you Limassol and Nathalie for this great opportunity! And thank you Alexandre Dossat for the beautiful text.

Exhibition at Caixa Forum Madrid

August 3, 2011

If it happens you are in Madrid, some interesting exhibitions are taking place at the Caixa Forum  from July 27th till November 13th.

The first one, called: “Teotihuacan. Ciudad de los Dioses”, with amazing small statues from the city of Teotihuacan. I love this piece. It’s my favorite.

The other one, “Haíti, 34 segundos después” is a photography one. It’s a compilation of photos after the earthquake that hit Haíti on the 12th of January of 2010. There’s also a room next to the photography space, where the visitor can enter and  watch testimonies of native people while standing on a moving platform that simulates the earthquake that shoke this country. Very nice pictures make sure to check it out. Photographs taken by Emilio Morenatti and Marta Ramoneda.

Almond tree in blossom

March 9, 2011

I love this period of the year when the almond trees flourishes. It’s such a beautiful tree. It becomes pink during few weeks only, and then it turns to dark brown for the whole year. It also reminds of my blog. I started my blog at this time of the year, a year ago.
