Mario El Khouri is 25 years old photographer and architect who’s interests swing between building narratives, spaces and images. Born in Saudi Arabia, with Lebanese roots, he grew up trying to define home. The search became a series of attempts building different notions and perceptions of space and memory. Right before graduating from high-school, one of photographic submissions was selected among 10 others artists to be exhibited at the British Museum (collaboration between Edge of Arabia and Offscreen Expeditions) which triggered a major shift of career. After 5 years of architectural studies between Beirut, Venice and London, the mechanical act of shooting became a tool of expression. Currently he is practicing spatial and exhibition design- also known as communication architecture- in Stuttgart and pushing his visual research in photography.
