Camille Zakharia

Camille Zakharia graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from NSCAD University Halifax Canada in 1997 and a Bachelor of Engineering from the American University of Beirut in 1985.

Using photography, photomontage and collage, Zakharia makes work about identity and displacement, reflecting his own life journey. He sees collage as a means of expressing a fragmented identity and reassembling memories.

Zakharia has exhibited across North America, Europe and the Middle East, including Venice Biennale, Victoria & Albert Museum, Canadian Museum of Civilization, FotoFest 2014, Musee du Quai Branly, Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Wichita Center for the Arts, Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilization, Chobi Mela, Sharjah Biennale and National Museum of Bahrain.

Zakharia’s works are in public collections including LACMA, Canadian Museum of Civilization, Victoria and Albert Museum, Musee Suisse de l’Appareil Photographique, Wichita Center for the Arts, National Museum of Bahrain, Barjeel Art Foundation, and Art Gallery at Saint Mary’s University.
