A Secret Garden by Lara Zankoul, a Lebanese photographer based in Beirut, revolves around a vision she had a while back. She writes, "The concept struck in my mind a month ago: A beautiful garden overtaking a blue room." And that is exactly what she constructed. With the help of two friends, Nour Saliba and Faysal Fakhany, the first of whom would end up being the model in the whimsical image, they purchased enough colorful albeit artificial flowers to cover the floor of a single room.

From there, A Secret Garden by Lara Zankoul was born. She writes, "This inner garden is a philosophical representation of the blooming spirit, of well-being. Be it a psychedelic hallucination in the mind of the character, or a symbolization of her sensuality, that garden was a temporary installation I immortalized with pixels."
