Eli Khoury was one of the key figures behind the Cedar revolution, which booted the Syrians out of the country after Prime Minister Rafik Hariri's assassination in 2005.
This was probably my favourite portrait session so far: a whole hour and a half while Khoury, head of Quantum advertising agency and owner of Now Lebanon news service, among other things, was interviewed for the magazine. Such a different feel from the usual five-minute CEO circus and tonnes of time to try different lighting set ups in their space-age 'Quantum Towers' office. Even the tea mugs made me look dowdy.
