The Casino Series strips down the stunning view of the Casino bay, located in Jounieh-Lebanon, to geometric shapes and simple lines to emphasise the majestic beauty of the scenery.

This series captures the magnificent colours of the bay at different glimpses in a 48-hours palette. The minimalistic compositions highlight the complexity of the spectacular colour-scheme of the Casino bay, making the audience fully immersed in the breathtaking view.

“My personal Casino journey started at the end of 2020 sitting on my friend’s terrace overlooking the majestic bay below the Casino. I spent 48 hours gazing on this beautiful scenery capturing and inhaling the different views at different times of the day.” ~Marwan Chamaa
