Nadim Asfar

born in Lebanon in 1976
lives and works in Beirut, Lebanon.

“Accept and forget photography as a pre-existing medium that has its own History, and consider it as a primitive inner language, which takes source inside of me, which timescale is mine, closer to words and sounds than to images. Closer to distorting images than to forming images.”

Born in Lebanon in 1976, Nadim Asfar obtained a Master in Photography in 2003 from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure Louis Lumière in Paris after a BA in Cinema Studies in ALBA (Beirut). He presented his first solo exhibition “Juin” at Fadi Mogabgab Gallery (Beirut), in 2004, and participated to several collective exhibitions such as the photography exhibition “Presence” that toured between 2006 and 2007 (Institut du Monde Arabe, Paris. GLstrand, Copenhagen. Centro de arte contemporaneo. Seville. Museum of modern art. Algiers.)
Nadim Asfar does also videos among which “Print(1)” a short movie that was presented in several festivals (Videoavril, organized Ashkal Alwan. Festival ParisCinema. Cinemaeast Film festival-Independent Film Center, New York.)
