From 11:00am on Friday 11th November until 6:00pm on Monday 23rd January
Thana Faroq is a street photographer and visual storyteller based in Sana'a, Yemen. In her photo series Women Like Us, Faroq opens a window into the lives of 15 women and their experience of the war in Yemen: their struggles, their aspirations, and their ambitions. The series gives these women an opportunity to tell their stories and share them with the outside world. By capturing the women in their familiar surroundings, Faroq provides a snapshot into the daily life of these women –what has changed and is missing due to the war – and thus offers a rare insight into Yemeni society.
The exhibition is commissioned and supported by British Council Yemen.
