2017 – <em>Samira</em>, Amira Ziyan

Amira Ziyan (b.1977) is a Druze photographer who lives in Yarka in the north of Israel. Her photographs in this series relate to the role of women in Druze society. Are they simply those who perform household tasks such as cooking and cleaning, or do they have identities of their own? These striking works, printed on a black aluminum background, have a luminous quality and raise questions about those who are often perceived as being behind the scenes. (Image courtesy of the artist)
