Fadi BouKaram was born and raised in Beirut and never wanted to be a photographer. Growing up in a war-torn country, photos often were -- and still are -- the only remnant of the many people who don't exist anymore. These people unwittingly became mythical, for each photo of them hid fantastical stories that only the adults lived and told; it was magic.

But magic wears off with age, and a strictly scientific education, graduate degrees in Engineering and Business, and a corporate career wiped out most of what was left of it. It wasn't until he hit my thirties that he realized how much he needed photography; both as a therapy tool and as a way to discover oddities within the mundane.

In 2013 a group of photographers from around the world, including Fadi, started the Observe Collective. It was borne out of a 'common fascination with watching and documenting the diverse humanity that surrounds us.' Aside from this shared interest, he can't but be extremely grateful to these now-14 talented individuals, for their support, friendship, and for shaping my photographic education.

Catherine Just is an award winning photographer, artist and mentor living in Los Angeles, California with her son, Max. She travels the globe capturing the Breath, Heartbeat and Pulse of the planet with her 4x5 camera, Polaroid, Pinhole and other alternative film cameras. Her career began in 1987 studying photography, film and video at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.

Catherine's work has been published on the cover of National Geographic Magazine, inside Oprah.com and PDN.com as well as galleries internationally including her most recent collaborative show in Paris, France.

Catherine believes that photography can be used to gather up evidence of what's living in-between the words and to document the unseen but deeply felt spaces and places within the internal and external landscape.

In 2016-2017 her personal projects, workshops and photo sessions took her to Paris, Cannes and Antibes, France,  Marrakech, Morocco,  Rome and Montecastello, Italy, Vancouver, B.C, Canada, Mexico City, Oaxaca, Puerto Escondido and Teotihuacan, Mexico, NYC, Boston, Seattle, Sedona and San Diego, USA with plans to head to Barcelona and Mallorca, Spain, New Orleans, Santa Fe, Albequerque and other US and International destinations.  

She teaches workshops and courses both online and in person as well as creating images for highly visible creatives for their new albums, websites, books and creative projects.

Her most prized creation is her son Max Harrison who happens to have Down syndrome and teaches her the most valuable tool to creativity is love. They are working on a collaborative photography project, film and book that will be shown around the world as a way to educate and advocate that Max, and people like him are valuable and unique individuals and not just a diagnosis.

Catherine is currently putting together Pop-Up Art show events in Los Angeles, Barcelona and Paris. Her fine art is sold online in limited editions.
