Portrait of Karina


Lebanese photographer and artist, Maher Attar, turns discarded masks and gloves on the streets of Beirut into visual art. The tapestry is made of iconic portraits and landscapes tiled with hundreds of images of the disposed protective gear. The mosaic is a pop art that tries to raise awareness and respect for the environment.


‘Corona virus hit everyone hard, and the homeless even harder .. Since March 12th, during his walks around the city of Beirut, Maher Attar was struck by the number of discarded gloves and masks he saw on his daily short routes. He immediately decided to document this strange phenomenon. People dispensed of them everywhere and the wind blew them away with plastic waste. He was concerned that the contaminated waste could itself transmit the disease’ ..

The tiled images are used as building blocks for the final superimposed images. The result is a magnificent series of mosaics of masks and gloves based on photos taken by the artist such as portraits and landscapes.

‘Photography is the most influential medium for environmental awareness’,  ..


The Beirut-based artist uses his photography as an instrument of environmental awareness. His surreal portraits serve the same purpose. His message reads ‘Despite all, always stay hygienic, stay positive’.

LOMOGRAPHY ARTWORK “LE TEMPS SUSPENDU”


The country is buzzing, travelling towards the future at a dizzying pace. With cities being the beating heart of nations. The future is already in the present, while at the same time the past is merely clinging on. My work on Le temps suspendu questions about these lost tracks and conceptualizes memorial sites. My idea is to capture the memory of something doomed to disappear or which has never really existed, namely the memory of a country with very powerful traditions but which, strangely, struggles to preserve its past, preferring instead to reconstruct a past out of elements of the new. I therefore went in search of this lost time with a feeling of emptiness and abandonment. I call upon memory and imagination through the romantic accents of the landscape. Ruins, stones, fragments, the desert, water, timeless characters. A certain melancholy is expressed in my images, as if I wanted to monumentalize these subjects.

     =============================================================================
The use of a Lomography camera determined a major part of the project’s aesthetic. “Lomography” is a fashionable movement based on the concept of constructing new cameras – using silver print films – from old, cheap models from the ex-Soviet Bloc. Here, I take the opposite approach to the supra-perfection of digital photography. The images are raw, poorly framed, out-of-focus, grainy and have a black circle in the corner. The camera has very few settings, but leaves substantial room for manoeuvre in terms of exposure times and advancing the film, done entirely manually, making it possible to explore areas beyond the range of basic contemporary cameras … I use deteriorated film, the chemical make-up of which is altered. Every print developed has a surprise in store. Perfection gives way to reality, to error. Emotion takes precedence over the ordered world. I regard the images produced as in some way archaeological, reminiscent of those of the earliest photographs, for example daguerreotypes. But it is not in the marketing slogan, “capturing life as it is” that I find my inspiration. On the contrary, obeying traditional photographic rules such as the composition and balance of the image is, for me essential in terms of achieving a truly creative work. »
