She Who Tells A Story

Untitled #2 (2008) - Photograph © Gohar Dashti.

There is a thoughtful, provocative exhibition up at the Museum of Fine Arts (Boston) through mid-January - "She Who Tells A Story: Women Photographers from Iran and the Arab World." It includes work by a dozen women from the region: Jananne Al-Ani, Boushra Almutawakel, Gohar Dashti, Rana El Nemr, Lalla Essaydi, Shadi Ghadirian, Tanya Habjouqa, Rula Halawani, Nermine Hammam, Rania Matar, Shirin Neshat, and Newsha Tavakolian. There is a brief review of the exhibition here at The Economist and another, accompanied by a slide show and including links to many of the photographers' web pages, here at The New York Times.
