Akram Zaatari

Akram Zaatari was born in Lebanon in 1966 and lives and works in Beirut. Zaatari’s work explores issues pertinent to postwar Lebanon, focusing primarily on the logic of religious and national resistance, and the production and circulation of images in the context of a geographically divided Middle East. Co-founder of the Arab Image Foundation (Beirut), Zaatari has focused on collecting, studying, and archiving the photographic history of the Middle East, notably studying the work of Lebanese photographer Hashem el Madani as a register of social relationships and photographic practices.
