BCP Photo Action: Laziza Brewery NeighborhoodSaturday April 8 2017View PhotosSee Event Photos

The Beirut Center of Photography (BCP) is back with its second workshop round for beginners in their effort to support the culture of photography in Lebanon and to ensure that photographers have the adequate tools and guidance to achieve their best work.

Led by master Lebanese photographer Elie Bekhazi along with lectures by renowned photographers Patrick Baz, Michel Zoghzoghi, and Aline Manoukian, students have been taking part in a four-course workshop series covering both theory and practice, culminating in a Photo Action that aims to document the Mdawar neighborhood, Ashrafieh, Beirut. The area was home to the Middle East’s oldest brewery, which closed in 1995. The 13,500 sq foot structure is currently being demolished, making way for a new high-end commercial and residential complex called Mar Mikhael Village.

BCP’s students will be challenged to photograph the neighborhood through a series of themes in order to practice their documentary skills and contribute to creating a collective archive of the quickly-changing and gentrifying neighborhood.
