AUT Alumnus Joe Khoury’s Bouyout Beirut in the Media
A graduate of AUT and the State University of New York Empire State College program in Graphic Design, Joe Khoury went into photography and has had a successful career for over 12 years. His photo collection of the old house facades on Gemmayze and Mar Mikhael streets, called Bouyout Beirut, have regained importance and resurfaced after the Beirut Port tragedy of August 4, 2020 when he and his wife Gabriela Cardozo went among the rubble to locate the houses they had photographed and placed the photo of each façade on the ruins. In addition to that, Joe raised funds for the Red Cross through his website to participate in the aid given to those who lost their homes. His initiatives did not go unnoticed. L’Orient Le Jour featured his actions in a special article https://www.lorientlejour.com/article/1230092?fbclid=IwAR3KVk7KrfTiMe5T-yPPaviijH85pRPcRJnh24zB25LLKzQ3HFwzbVjyHlc and international media have interiewd the couple for their initiative. His photo collection of old facades of Gemmayze and Mar Mikhael streets are found on https://www.joekhourystudio.com/bouyout-beirut.
