El-Zohra was not born in a day

My artistic project is a photographic representation of Arab myths from the Jahiliya period. By visually representing the mythological stories of pre-Islamic Arabs, I aim to reveal a part of Arab history that has been long hidden and ignored. Photography seems for me the optimal medium to deconstruct hegemonic discourses and to disclose the many readings that constitute historical truths.
