Bamako 2011 –Ymane Fakhir


I like to record social and religious phenomena related to Islamic-Arabic culture. Based on my own experiences, I address the issue of women, their future, their liberation and the norms applied to them, notably through traditional marriage. When I was eight years old my mother began assembling the trousseau I’ve photographed here. It testifies to the persistence of a model, inducing the child that I was into becoming a woman.
