Rania Matar’s project showcases a natural and organic continuation of her project “SHE” which was published into a book by Radius.
“Where Do I Go?” revolves around the past 2 difficult years for Lebanon, and focuses on the 2019 uprising, the Covid-19 pandemic, and the Beirut port explosion on August 4, 2020.
During her recent trips to her homeland, the Lebanese-American photographer found hope in the younger generation of women, and instead of just focusing on destruction, Matar also reflected on their beauty, strength, and resilience.
“These women are at that crossroad. Where do they go? I was their age when I left Lebanon in 1984 during the Civil War. Some are leaving; others cannot afford to go anywhere. I want to empower them and tell their story,” said the photographer.
It is worth noting that the Lebanese-born American mother is reaching a high level of fame in the field of photography, winning many awards.
