Fadi BouKaram is a Lebanese photographer, whose work has been featured in various news media such as CNN, Foreign Policy Magazine, and BBC. In 2016, he spent five months on the road visiting 47 towns with the same name as his country, in search of a Lebanon without war. He also discovered the heart of rural America. He is currently undertaking his second US road trip, including return visits to several Lebanons to plant “cedar of Lebanon” saplings as a gesture of unofficial diplomacy and cross-cultural goodwill.

View photos from BouKaram’s journey at Outpost Sept. 8-23, and at the Page Theatre Sept. 26-Oct. 26. This exhibit is part of The Cedar Tree Project, a season-long exploration of cultural heritage, perceptions and identity through the lens of Arab and Arab American artists presented by the Page Series and curated by Sharon Mansur. Lebanon, USA is presented in partnership with Outpost Winona. Additional events and details are available at pagetheatre.org.
