Photographer Frederic Lemzi is interested in the transition from the West to the East, specifically those geographical and cultural “in-betweens” from Europe to the Middle and Near East. Above is Bucharest, Romania and below is Kfar Khilfah, Syria.
From August to December 2008 I traveled between Vienna and Beirut. I encountered people in versatile worlds, inside or in front of architectural places, both real and artificial, public and private. In my photographs, people emerge either as just passers-by or while waiting, as subjects and objects of the viewer’s eye, moving about in their urban or rural environment.
