FINE ART SECTION
In the world of digital photography where images are consumed like fast food, Maher Attar shuns instant gratification in favour of Lomography, a technique that makes the most of inexpensively built cameras, expired films and the courage to click away with no control over the final result.
Shooting with expired film makes you understand that you have to trust yourself more and be more confident with yourself and your camera. Never think about the result, just hit the shutter.

Collection of photographs from the lomography artwork presented as part of the First edition of the Biennale of Arab World’s Photographers in Paris, a work on time that questions about these lost tracks and conceptualizes memorial sites.
