Serge Najjar Captures The Architecture Of Light

Words

Lebanese photographer Serge Najjar’s series “The Architecture of Light” explores the natural illumination of buildings around his native Beirut. His high-contrast black and white photos focus on the geometric shapes, lines and patterns cast upon the walls of concrete structures around the city. Playing with negative space and the tension between sunshine and shadow, Najjar’s compositions reflect his artistic philosophy that “It’s not about what you see, but how you see it.”
