Originally a biotechnology engineer, Roger Mokbel established himself as a self-taught Lebanese photographer by using his visual works asa plea for social justice.
His work explores the intersection between the personal and the collective. Always socially engaged, he is fascinated in studying the multiple layers through which a topic can be approached. In his storytelling projects, he has often used human psychology as a point of entry to address societal and environmental concerns.
His first project ‘Describe the sky to me’ was selected by the Arab Documentary Photography Program in 2018 and received the Photography Prize by the Boghossian Foundation in 2019. His second project ‘And then, they just left’ was exhibited at the Festival International des Arts de Bordeaux in 2021 and in Madrid as part of the official selection of PhotoEspaña 2022.
He is a member of Collectif 1200, a collective of Lebanese photographers and visual artists.
