Riding Highway 1 from San Francisco to L.A is a gift. In the middle of the ride, 3h of Big Sur fog. No way out, just one road, the cliff on your right, mountains to your left. So amazing to believe we are in the north of England while this is California.
Rami is a photographer and film director awarded for his cinematography, art direction and vision carried by his last movie WITH (international film festivals in London, Toronto, Nice, Palm Springs, Hollywood...)
He travels the world with his family catching time, sharing dreams through his photography. For him a picture is just a hint, a second in a full story that the viewer has to imagine then. He believes that dreams are personal matters and that each viewer should have the freedom to invent the story with his own memories, beliefs and hopes. He founded Lola James Harper in 2013 to share his archives of pictures, scents and souvenirs.
Rami Mekdachi was born in the 70's in Beirut, Lebanon raised in Paris, France and lived a few years in Lancaster, UK and around the San Juan Islands, USA.
Our photography is printed in Paris on Argentic paper and Fine Art paper, prepared in our Lola James Harper Studio in the heart of Batignolles Art District. Every photography comes with an official certificate stamped, embossed signed & dated by Rami Mekdachi.
