Shedding Skin (4)

by Yumna Al-Arashi

Digital Archival Print

Yumna Al-Arashi, born to a Yemeni father and Egyptian mother, was raised in the United States. She studied International Politics at The New School in New York City and her on-going photography work has received support from The US Department of State Office of Art in Embassies, International Women’s Media Foundation, The Arab Fund for Arts and Culture, National Geographic Abu Dhabi, and VSCO. She was named an Up And Coming Female Journalist by Forbes Magazine in 2011.

 

Yumna's first solo show, Shedding Skin, seeks to take ownership of the traditional depictions of hammam scenes. She has reenacted the space so commonly seen in orientalist works around the popularly known Muslim bathhouses - spaces which are so important and sacred to the female communities of the Middle East and North Africa. Her series has been accompanied by her first short film, a reflection on sisterhood, and the tragic loss of home.
