I took this picture in 2018 when I visited the city of Shibam, the town where the first skyscrapers were built. It was my first time in Shibam, the town does not accept many strangers. Although it was fascinating to see the houses from the outside, I was also intrigued by what goes on inside these houses and how women live inside

In war-torn countries the vast majority of professional photographers work for news agencies. This means their work is often focused on coverage of conflict. Our project is motivated by the opportunity to give talented photographers an entirely new outlet for their work. Through this project we hope to reveal a side to war-torn countries rarely seen in the international media.
