Bashayer Ali is a Yemeni artist born and raised in Saudi Arabia, though returning to Yemen for her University education. Drawn to the complexity and vibrancy of Yemeni streets, Bashayer's principal interest is street photography. She seeks out underreported stories in Yemen which require urgent documentation. Bashayer's work has been exhibited in Sana'a and Paris. She still believes that there are countless stories on the streets of Yemen that needs to be documented.
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.
