Women of Kuwait

by Maha Alasaker

cover of Women of Kuwait

“Since moving to New York from Kuwait City Maha Alasaker learned that the everyday American has no conception of what daily life is like for women in modern-day Kuwait. Seeking to address this, Alasaker began making portraits of women in their bedrooms and asking them about their lives. This intimate collection of environmental portraits provides a never-before-seen look at what it means to be a young woman in Kuwait.” — Daylight Books
