Picture an Arab Man

Picture an Arab Man

Amine, Tunisia Amine, Tunisia

Picture an Arab Man is a portrait series started in 2009 to capture young Arab men of diverse backgrounds.

The conceptual aim of this portrait series is two-fold. First, to try to uncover and break the stereotypes placed upon the Arab male, while providing an alternative visual representation of that identity. Second, it is a celebration of  sensual beauty, an unexplored aspect of the identity of the contemporary Arab man, on the cusp of change in a society that reveres an out-dated form of hyper-masculinity.
