Zico House and Photo-Festivals are thrilled to launch the first session of Photo Forum Beirut on the 19th January 2010
Photo Forum is an evening event offering and promoting a critical space within the photography community in Beirut.
Once ever two monthes, established and emerging photographers will have the opportunity to project and discuss their work with their peers and specialists in a public environment at Zico House.
Everyone is welcome to attend, get involved in the discussion and discover new bodies of work.
**Format of the sessions
Selected photographers will have a chance to experience speaking about their work in public, to articulate concerns, aims and plans for their photography and to ask opinions in an open environment.
We strongly encourage feedback from the attending audience.
The session will begin at 19.00 on 19th January 2010 giving all photographers 5 minutes to present their work, followed by a discussion with the attending public.
Every month, Photo Forum Beirut at Zico House will also invite a local or visiting host to speak about a specific issue related to photography practice.
For the first session, Photo Forum Beirut will host a special screening of Cia de Foto's artwork "Caixa de Sapato".
The screening will be followed by a short presentation of the concept of photo collective by Yasmina Reggad.
