Kleio Projects is pleased to announce its inaugural exhibition of photographs by Tanya Traboulsi entitled “Music is Life: Lebanese Sound Stills.” Her on-going series “Music is Life” captures the Lebanese alternative music scene as it evolves both locally and internationally. Intimate, alluring and deeply personal, this body of work was born from close relationships with a small group of influential figures driving the alternative scene. Tanya has gained unprecedented access to moments in the studio, live performances as well as individual portraits. Her images celebrate the intertwining of life and art.

Tanya Traboulsi lives and works in Beirut, Lebanon. Her work has been exhibited in group exhibitions in Prague and Beirut. Her photographic narrative of the food landscape in Lebanon was published in the book “From Akkar to Amel–Lebanon’s Slow Food Trail”. Her work has also appeared in numerous publications including the Chicago Tribune, Los Angles Times, Marie Claire, Nox, Elle Oriental, Al Akhbar, Aishti, Sowar, Gulf Life and others. Tanya is currently signed with Anzenberger Agency. This is the first solo exhibition of her work.
