How Arab Girls…

I began documenting the secret lives of my sisters aged 9.5 and 20 in June 2018. I was taking photos of their mundane, everyday moments with my iPhone and collecting them. I started this project as a way of challenging the overly embellished and curated images of Arab girls online which often leave little room for individual nuances and complexities. Sometimes the limitations of using an iPhone camera can generate interesting layers to the work thus the black and white imagery. This series aims to capture the lives of my sisters – two Arab girls of totally different generations – doing what Arab girls aren’t often seen doing.
