Photograph, Lubna, Beirut, Lebanon, from the series A Girl and Her Room
Rania Matar draws on her cross-cultural experiences as a Lebanese-born, United States–based photographer to explore issues of personal and collective identity. Matar explains, “My work . . . takes a contemporary look at women living in everyday circumstances and focuses on building visual, but also representational, associations between the portrayal of women in the United States and the Middle East, ultimately allowing women to identify with each other through common life experiences.”
