Event Details

In the conservative world of Yemen where there are no luxuries of park or safe places amidst the suffering of war and siege, women have created a world of their own, where they forget their worries. It allows a breath toward adapting to everyday pressures, whether as a working woman, a mother or both. In this secret society women gather in homes relaxing with shisha, smoking cigarettes and sometimes using quat listening to music and discussing the life and politics around them.

Eman Al- Awami is a photographer living in Yemen. She works for international organizations to document humanitarian situations and public life. She attended a training workshop in Beirut, Lebanon taken by Cardiff photojournalist Glenn Edwards for the Thomson Foundation and British Council in 2018.
