“This is one of the countries where I… am able to be myself. I love its intimacy and the humbleness of its people.”
1962 born in Lebanon and lives and works in Manama, Bahrain.
Camille Zakharia left Lebanon in 1985 during the Civil War. Since then, he has spent time living in the USA, Greece, Turkey and Canada, before moving to Bahrain in 1999. He graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from NSCAD University (Nova Scotia College of Fine Art & Design), Halifax, Canada in 1997 and a Bachelor of Engineering from the American University in Beirut in 1985.
Camille uses his camera to document the journey taken since his departure from Lebanon. Through photo-montage, collage and print, he both reveals and reconstructs his encounters with people and places, exteriors and interiors. Within this process is an exploration of home, identity and belonging in the context of a globalised condition. A particular source of fascination is urban landscape and what is represneted socially and culturally by changes in the shape and size of cities.
