Moophz is the ultimate Lebanese ninja warrior of night sky photography. He captures the dark skies, the Milky Way, the Northern Lights, meteor showers. I was introduced to through a couple friends who became obsessed with Astrophotography. They pack up every weekend and head to the various mountain-tops away from the light pollution of the city, they camp and wait for the night sky to sparkle.
This week's featured talent is not a painter nor a singer but rather a content person.

I grew up in the 80’s, back then when the Kassatly Chtaura Jallab ad was produced in 1987, the tune became an instant hit. Over the years, you couldn’t think of the product itself without humming the melody in the back of your head.
Mira El Khalil is not a painter, illustrator, photographer, musician or singer. She is all of them together; she is a holistic young artist.

It is a personal hobby, her way of expressing her thoughts of the world around her.
