Lebanese photographer Munir Abdallah elegantly exposes the powerful details of Middle-Eastern men in his work. Read more below.
Because Lebanese queer artist Munir Abdallah's gallery on our site of his first nude gay photography exhibition in the Arab world was so popular, we asked him for even more intimate photos of these traditionally private men.
Muir Abdallah's exhibit of gay erotic photographs of Arab men at ArtLab in Beirut City in Lebanon is over. But the impact of the notable first show of gay erotica in the Arab world still lingers -- and gives hope for more open expression in this new year.
Munir, born in 1964 in Beirut, is a Tai Chi instructor and a photographer. In the eighties, Munir abandoned his studies in cinematography to pursue and devote himself to male nude photography. He is a cinephile, a devout reader of comics and graphic novels, and art enthusiast; these three passions are a major influence in his work. Due to the nudity and homosexual content of his pictures, Munir only considered starting showing his work in 2017. Here is a link to our presentation of his first solo exhibition.
