Serge Najjar uses his lens to capture living works of art throughout the city.Walking into the show at Galerie Tanit, it takes a moment to realize that you are looking at photographs and not paintings.This conversation between apparent abstraction and realism is important because it's the blend of real and surreal that Najjar's work investigates. Many of the human figures were neither posed nor, it seems, aware that their ambit was somehow art. A PhotoMed laureate whose work has been shown in Paris Photo, among other international exhibitions, Najjar's abilities are particularly impressive considering his background.Najjar was 37 years old at the time, and working full time as a lawyer.When comparing the photos to the paintings it's amazing that these vistas exist as everyday situations.Despite the international recognition, Najjar remains humble.
Keep dancing, in war and in trash
From Nigeria with blufunk love
From the rubble of a fading memory
