David Hury and many other guests on Helwi Beirut’s episode 74!


Photographer and journalist David Hury who has been a guest on our show previously was our main guest today. He talked about Beirut Prints. Beirut Prints was created as a continuity of the book Beyrouth Sur Ecoute. The objectives of this project are to show another image of Beirut and to promote the photographers. For the first series of the project, David Hury used images of photographers he knows. But he is in a constant look out for new photographs. The second series is open to anyone as long as the images reflect Beirut.

Poet Antoine Boulad and artist Mohamad Rawas were on our show today. Antoine Boulad issued an Ouvrage D’Art et de Poesie. The texts and poems are written by Boulad himself in the French language and the book has been translated to the English language by Mishka Morani. The texts are inspired by the works of the artist Mohamad Rawas.
