The London Festival of Photography 2012 presents work by Wasma Mansour, exploring the lives and multiple identities of Saudi women living in London.

About

Single Saudi Women, is the culmination of a four year research project by London-based, Saudi photographer Wasma Mansour. Pictorial conventions in global mass media exhibit recurring visual tropes which stereotype and essentialise the portrayal of Saudi women. As a result, such generalisations have suppressed Saudi women's efforts in reconciling with their identities and asserting their sense of individualism. Mansour uses the photograph as an observational tool and an apparatus to encourage dialogue about the representation of the self as a public and private figure.
