Through The Eyes
‘Through The Eyes’ is a photographic series reflecting a personal journey of self-representation and identity, exploring themes around cultural and religious expectations and standards often imposed mostly upon Arab women.
Each photo within the series represents a cultural significance to the artists homeland of Libya, showcasing the country’s distinct culture while allowing for the viewer to consider and relate to it organically.
