Myriam Boulos was born in Beirut, Lebanon, a country ravaged by war and reinvention. At sixteen, she began using her camera to capture the essence of Beirut, and its people and to question her role in Lebanese society. She uses photography to explore, push boundaries, and challenge societal norms.
The recipient of a prestigious prize, Myriam exhibited her series Nightshift at the Byblos Bank. Conceived as a revelation of impulses and identities repressed during daytime life, this series of diaristic photos captures Lebanese youth in wanton grace. The bold and unapologetic women of Nightshift claim their rightful place in society through their love of nightlife.
Myriam has documented the unbridled abandonment of young men and women in a post-war society trying to reimagine itself.
