Women of Kuwait
From the time I went to New York City four years ago, people have always been asking about my identity, and how I am what I am?! Their general social stigmas for the Middle Eastern women made them believe that women are constrained in Kuwait. This work is portraying Kuwaiti women inside their sleeping room. The most private space, where they can be the rawest version of themselves. These are the real faces of the women of Kuwait.
