HomeTown Women by Maha Al-Asaker


Like colors, shadow and light, woman plays a major role in life. And in her eyes you see all the colors of life.

"I am always curious on the role of female in the family. The daughter, the sister, the mother and the grandmother. I took these portraits when I visited Dominican Republic; I was drawn to the color of their life." - Maha Al-Asaker
