In the evocative domain of photographic storytelling, Rami Mekdachi's soul-stirring voyage, titled "Where the Sun Keeps Shining", holds a realm unto itself. Across a span of a decade, under the tender yet ceaseless glow of summer, Rami, along with his cherished family, set forth on an odyssey that seemed to stretch as infinitely as the American roads they traversed. As one motel faded into the horizon, another emerged, each bringing with it a fresh dawn laden with promise and unexplored vistas.
The poetic heartbeat of this journey resonated profoundly with Rami’s son, Noé Mekdachi, whose keen artistic senses found harmony in the unscripted narrative of these road trips. Currently a distinguished scholar at the prestigious Istituto Marangoni in Paris, and a celebrated musician, Noé's inherent affinity for art finds a vibrant expression in the realms of fashion, music, and now, through the serene yet evocative canvas of photography.
It was Noé who meticulously curated the photographs, each a frame encapsulating the transient yet timeless moments of summer. His adept hands crafted the artwork that now binds this collection, offering the viewer a passage through time, space, and the delicate threads of memory that weave the fabric of "Where the Sun Keeps Shining". Each image, enriched with Noé’s artistic touch, transcends mere visual representation, morphing into a symphony of colors, emotions, and narratives.
As Noé navigated through the archives of his father’s lens, what emerged was not just a photo book, but a tender ode to summer, a homage to the unyielding bond of family, and a narrative that evokes a profound sense of wanderlust. The dialog between the visuals and the artwork invites one on a voyage, not just across the undulating terrains of America, but through the nuanced spectrum of human emotions and the pure, unadulterated joy of exploration.
With every page you turn, you traverse a mile alongside Rami and his family, under the summer sun that casts a golden glow on the memories etched onto the pages of "Where the Sun Keeps Shining". Through the confluence of Rami's frames and Noé’s artwork, a world unfolds where the sun never sets, where the road extends into eternity, and where every moment holds within it an endless summer waiting to be discovered.
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.
