"Scenes from Africa," Dar al-Mussawir's latest exhibition, opened Thursday with a close-up look at the people and wildlife living side by side in the reservations of Kenya and Tanzania. Lebanese-British photographer Riad Dimechkie's 24-photo showcase is the product of a two-week trip exploring national parks, reserves and sanctuaries, including Kilimanjaro, the Serengeti, the Masai Mara, Amboseli National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara.Dimechkie moved back to Lebanon in 2007, becoming a senior business lecturer at AUB.Communicating through the party's guide and translator, Dimechkie observed the cultures and traditions of local communities as he photographed.All Dimechkie's photos were shot with a Canon 5D MK IV, with a 70-200 mm lens with a 2x multiplier – needed for capturing the photos of the animals without disturbing them.Another shot shows several zebras facing away from the camera, ears piqued in alert.Dimechkie is unsure of his next destination but he'd like to like to explore India and East Asia.
