The world according to Monsieur Khiar's channel

The world according to Monsieur Khiar


After years of working in war zones as a documentary photographer for the New York Times and Vanity Fair, photographer Jeroen Robert Kramer decided to start a new life as an artist in Lebanon. In his hometown of Beirut, he meets Monsieur Khiar, an elderly gentleman in whom he recognizes a better version of himself. Instead of focusing on the spectacular, Kramer is telling an everyday story – one that can help him transform the scars of his past into a work of art. As Monsieur Khiar refuses to be photographed, Kramer’s fascination turns into an obsession. Screened at Idfa and Huis Marseille in 2016.
