The New Levant Initiative
A couple of weeks ago I was hired by an event company in NYC to photograph their client's conference in DC at the Kennedy Center. I'd never heard of the organization before; turns out their purpose is pretty fascinating:
The panelists spoke about architecture, economics, art, music and geography. It was easily one of the most interesting conferences I've photographed.
To cap off the conference, they held a concert at the Kennedy Center that evening which featured musician Ibrahim Maalouf accompanied by a 30-piece orchestra and the National Children's Chorus. They performed a symphony he wrote specifically for The New Levant Initiative; it was both beautiful and haunting.
