Camille El Kareh
1897 – 1952, Lebanon
Kareh learned photography in the village of Kfardlakous, Lebanon, thanks to an Armenian who fled the genocide. There he acquired the necessary skills that enabled him to begin his career as a professional photographer. His most fascinating photographs are still the post-mortem portraits of Christian families of Zghorta. He once owned a studio in Zghorta, which he used in winter, but spent most of the summer months taking portraits of passers-by around the St. George Church in Ehden, a summer resort in northern Lebanon.
