With Instagram disseminating heaps of trivial pictures daily, what is the value of the image? One answer seems to be the photographer's success at framing the subject in a manner that suggests a narrative to the onlooker."Raw Talents," now up at Art Factum Gallery, features the works of 10 student photographers from the Department of Design at the Faculty of Architecture, Art and Design of Notre Dame University's Louaize campus.In the series "Vulnerable Visits," Yahchouchy's dimly lit scenes of men sleeping beneath colorful mosquito nets evokes soothing solitude.Cynthia Ghoussoub's black-and-white portraits of bearded men confront viewers with the stigma many young men with facial hair have had to deal with throughout this country, and beyond.One work, a black-and-white image of a happy-looking couple in a wide open field, is juxtaposed with a colored image of the same field.Photographers have been superimposing old photographs over newer ones for quite some time, but Farhat's juxtapositions create an intriguing dynamic between two photographic representations of the same scene.
