Pantanal Land of the Jaguar | Photo Exhibit by Michel Zoghzoghi

The Embassy of Brazil in Beirut and the Brazil-Lebanon Cultural Center (Brasiliban) have the pleasure to invite you to the opening of the photography exhibition ‘Pantanal, Land of the Jaguar’, by Michel C. Zoghzoghi, set to take place on April 25th, 2019 starting 7pm, at Brazil-Lebanon Cultural Center, in Achrafieh.

Michel Zoghzoghi discovered a passion for photography 12 years ago: he bought a camera to take to a polo tournament organized by a friend in London and has never been able to put it down since. Michel’s photographic focus is on the “endangered”. From the tigers of India to the polar bears of the Arctic, from the mesmerizing landscapes of Africa to the great white sharks of the Southern Oceans, he has traveled the world in search of the vanishing beauty our planet still has to offer. Through his photography, Michel wants to show how truly beautiful our planet is but he also wants to alert people to the fact that it is endangered with many species on the brink of extinction.

Michel Zoghzoghi’s achievements include the following:

Exhibitions:
• Photo London – Tanit Gallery, London, United Kingdom. May 2018
• Cattitude and the Unbearable Lightness of Woofing – Lebanon. November 2018
Awards:
• Semi-Finalist: Windland Awards 2018
• Finalist: Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2018 competition
Publications:

• Book: “Cattitude and the Unbearable Lightness of Woofing” – November 2018
• Numerous magazines including National Geographic Traveler
