Renowned Lebanese globetrotter, photographer and visual artist Charbel Bouez was chosen by International Corporate Events, a Lebanese events company, to represent his country at the prestigious Expo Milano 2015, held in Milan.For the occasion, Bouez created 15 staged photographs representing Lebanon's culinary heritage, traditions and lifestyle.These photos, along with some landscape photographs, are being exhibited at Lebanon's pavilion under the theme "Cuisine: the Lebanese Art and Soul". Bouez chose to go with staged photos rather than shooting people in their natural element.For one of the staged photos, Bouez ended up using an unusual prop – raw cauliflowers at a group of surfers' barbecue on a public beach in Jiyyeh, south Lebanon.At Expo Milan, Bouez's photos were well-received.What inspires me the most in McCurry's work is that he focuses on the human consequences of war. I think he is among the best photographers in the world because his photos and portraits are emotions driven with each photo telling a story". Bouez is a persistent hard worker.Bouez gives advice to upcoming photographers that wish to make it big.
