The second annual student photography exhibit showcasing the works of 120 students was held at LAU Byblos from November 4-6 and will move to the Beirut campus tomorrow.

The exhibition features 400 black-and-white photographs focused on four themes: action, campus atmosphere, architectural detail, and portrait. The event is organized by the newly established School of Architecture and Design.

LAU photography instructor Bassam Lahoud, who put the event together, says that in addition to serving as an attraction for visitors, he hopes the exhibition will help stir interest in photography among students and lead to a minor in the field.

“I have a lot of students telling me they want to do a photography minor,” says Lahoud.

The featured student photographers are from Lahoud’s 2008-2009 Photography I courses, offered at both the Beirut and Byblos campuses.

Lahoud said he chose the four themes to relate to the different majors of his students who come from various backgrounds including graphic design, architecture, communication arts and fine arts.

The Beirut exhibition will open on November 12 at 5:00 p.m. at Sheikh Zayed Hall and will run until November 17 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
