the concrete jungle of towers, buildings and architectural constructions are transformed by beirut-based photographer serge najjar‘s eye into abstractions, whimsical scenes, and moments of visual pleasure. ‘every saturday, I drive my car towards a destination still unknown and guide myself by my instinct, by light and by whatever attracts my eye’ the photographer describes. ‘this is when I stop, position myself and wait for something to happen. in most cases, what captures my attention are the architectural details. my aim, then, is to try and get closer to abstraction (within the real world). I try to look at my everyday surroundings with a new eye. these photos show what I have seen’. his series ‘abstract realities’ takes a geometrical approach to building, simplifying windows, doors and walls into colors, shadows and materials.
