“A population of 3 million, 18 religions and 25 years of war have formed a thick social fabric – layers upon layers that have blinded us from seeing its beauty. We stripped down Beirut to show its true colors. Our city has never looked so vulnerable,” states Plastik Magazine about artist and creative director Ryan Houssari’s new photo series entitled Minimal Beirut.
This photo series highlights the unique contrast between the constant construction, heavy traffic and diverse architecture, painting Beirut a wave of almost neon creamy pinks, sky blues and sunflower yellows. Ryan Houssari created the works along with minimalist style photographer Matt Crump, showcasing a version of Beirut injected with color and pop-art energy.
The photo series will also be on display at Beirut Design Week, which kicks off June 1 and runs until the 7th.
