The majority of Egyptian women live at the fringe of the society; they are almost invisible in the male dominated radar. Many of them still find themselves in a position where they are required to obey their fathers, brothers, husbands, and even sons once they mature into manhood.

 

Silent Screams is a series of staged self-portraits exploring notions of female cultural & gender identity. The work aims to put these females in focus and give them a voice, in an attempt to scream out loud and make visible what many of them still endure.
