AIPAD Talks + Aperture Myriam Boulos: What's Ours
April 27, 2022 at 3:00 pm ET
Based in Beirut, Myriam Boulos, (left) now a Magnum-nominee, has created a searing, diaristic body of work portraying her friends, family, and her city’s society with startling energy and intimacy. Her series, “What’s Ours,” featured in Aperture magazine’s spring issue titled “Celebrations” casts an unflinching eye on the revolution that began in Lebanon in 2019, with protests against corruption and government austerity, as well as the aftermath of the devastating port explosion in August 2020. Of her approach to photography, Boulos states: “It’s more of a need than a choice. I obsess about things and I don’t know how to deal with these obsessions in any other way but photography.” The talk will be introduced by Michael Famighetti, editor, Aperture
