Byblos Bank inaugurated on Tuesday April 16th 2013, a photo exhibition titled Urban Landscapes by the winner of Byblos Bank Award for photography 2012, Dory Younes.


The exhibition, which is curated by Beirut Art Fair, is held at Byblos Bank Headquarters, Ashrafieh, until Sunday April 21st 2013.

It will open for visitors from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. during weekdays and from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. over the week-end.

The 20 photographs displayed show various urban landscapes and feature a new form of artistic expression of the urban life.


Nada Tawil, Head of Group Communication Department at Byblos Bank said: “Byblos Bank is committed to support young Lebanese artists and to give exposure to rising photographers. Following his win, Dory Younes went into a personalized mentoring program funded by the Bank to help him prepare for his first exhibition. As part of its commitment, Byblos Bank will exhibit this fresh work in order to help Dory launch his career as a photographer.”

Pascale Odille, Artistic Director of Beirut Art Fair, said: « The aesthetics of the pictures are not of primary importance. What matters is how they can impact the human senses and how easily one can interpret them.”

For his part, Dory Younes said: “My experience throughout the Byblos Bank Award competition was very rewarding as the Bank gave me the opportunity to improve my work and boost my career in photography. Competitions as such help indeed spark and revive creativity among young artists.

I liked that he captured nice old cars and my favorite photo is the one of the old black mustang!

If you still didn’t get the chance to check them out, you can still pass by tomorrow!
