Mai 2014 . Cairo
I'm working on my new project Gamda: by flying to Egypt a second time this year, i made portraits of egyptian women combined with interviews and a reportage.
Egypt is going through a severe political crisis during the last months and lot of people is fighting for demand of equality and against the violation of human rights and especially women's rights. By my work, I want to approach egyptian women from different social environments, whose position in the society is depending on religion, education and the socioeconomic situation, in light of the question: what does it mean to be a woman in Egypt today? Therefor the german foundation VG Bild Kunst supports me with a scholarship.
To be continued...
A Gamda in arabic is a good and strong woman, both physical and mental.
