Description


A searing, diaristic portrayal of a city and society in revolution by Magnum nominee Myriam Boulos

In her debut monograph, Myriam Boulos casts an unflinching eye on the revolution that began in Lebanon in 2019 with protests against government corruption and austerity--culminating with the aftermath of the devastating Beirut port explosion of August 2020. She portrays her friends and family with startling energy and intimacy, in states of pleasure and protest. Boulos renders the body in public space as a powerful motif, both visceral and vulnerable in the face of state neglect and violence. Of her approach to photography, Boulos states: "It's more of a need than a choice. I obsess about things and I don't know how to deal with these obsessions in any other way but photography." Featuring a contextual essay by noted writer Mona Eltahawy, What's Ours showcases Boulos's strident and urgent vision.
