PHOTOS BY BASSAM LAHOUD

The photos that are assembled in this exhibition represent a variety of ‘moments’, all belonging to a time that we commonly refer to nowadays as the ‘golden period’ of Lebanon, a period when the new republic was relatively still in its youth, exhibiting signs of cosmopolitanism in its capital city, while preserving the original beauty of its landscape, of its villages, and its traditions.

Bassam Lahoud is an architect, and a member of the Order of Engineers and Architects of Beirut. He is also a professional photographer, member of the Press Photographer Syndicate and the Union Catholique Internationale de Presse in Lebanon. He is the chair of “ESCWA arts council” at the United Nations, a founding member of the magazine “Prestige”, and founder and president of “the Lebanese House of Photography”.

Lahoud has been on the faculty of the School of Architecture & Design at the Lebanese American University for more than 30 years. He served on several national and international photography juries since 1982, and has to his credit more than 50 photography exhibitions around the world. He has been awarded the Spanish “Order of the Civil Merit, Grade Commander” from King Juan Carlos of Spain and the Spanish government.
