Photo Friday with Lara Zankoul
At the young age of 25, Lebanese artist, Lara Zankoul, is a part-time economist and a part-time fine arts photographer. The self-taught photographer calls her work a necessary escape from her monotonous day job, and this sense of escapism is the most pervasive theme in her work. Her website states:
“Symbols are omnipresent in her body of work and characters are anonymous and timeless, making her images universal. The concepts are initially expressions of her subconscious as they are spontaneous visuals in her mind. Her photographic process resides in recreating or mimicking these cerebral moments rather than capturing reality.”
These surreal depictions explore ideas of being lost, and defying time and gravity. Go here to see her other images, including her moving images.
