A New York Times article discussing how members of the Lebanese Diaspora are increasingly establishing themselves in the international art scene. It also discusses how many of these artists have a constant connection to their home country and often reflect Lebanon into their work.

“In France, the Lebanese community numbers about 100,000, including some 80 established artists who, he said, are receiving increasing international attention. Several, including the photographers Lamia Joreige and Akram Zaatari, were among those chosen for Lebanon’s first ever Pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2007. Paris-based photographers were also well represented in the Arab Image Foundation’s display at this year’s Paris Photo fair.” (from website below)
