George Awde

American-Lebanese, born 1980

Splitting his time between Beirut and New York, George Awde produces photographs that often delve into themes of contemporary masculinity, the male body, and ideas of physical and psychological strength. His works that feature Middle Eastern men are especially poignant, showing individuals who have left poor regions of Syria, Lebanon, and Iraq. Awde establishes a close relationship with his subjects, making the photographs an intimate portrayal of their culture and day-to-day life. At its core, his work explores human corporeality and how modern man reconciles himself with an ever-changing world.
