Antar works with different photographic material, such as expired negatives defying the technological advances of digital photography and collections of archival images. Focusing on the praxis behind the production and the visual quality of an image, his approach revolves around questioning the nature of the photographic medium, its constraints and limitations. The result is a visual practice deeply engaged with the historical and theoretical discourses of photography, rich in poetic beauty and conceptual complexity.

In 2001, he graduated with a degree in Agricultural Engineering from the American University of Beirut, he earned a diploma from École des Beaux-Arts in Paris
