About her work
Myriam uses her camera to question the city, its people, and her place among them. Her photo series are a mix of documentary and personal research. Most of her projects happen at night because, for her, that is when Beirut’s map seems to suddenly appear. Her work demonstrates her strong relationship to Beirut, focusing on the social as well as the physical aspect of its society.
