Through the Eyes of Saudi Arabian Women is a concept that prompts disbelief that it is only emerging now.
And the results are startling:
Poignantly, as the photographer Madawi Balghunaim observes:
Saudi females are usually the ones captured in photographs rather than doing the capturing, and they are usually captured in a single, stereotypical fashion. Being on the other side of the lens, I can help change that. [Source]
The images captured are breath-taking in their beauty and frankness.
Thankfully, the photographs from the exhibit are available in a book-form, Photography Through the Eyes of Saudi Arabian Women, with additiona commentary detailing the experiences of female photographers living in the Kingdom.
Which is most handy, as I could gaze at these images for eons.
