US-based Lebanese photographer Rania Matar presents three series of works shot between 2005 and 2012 at the Toot Yung Art Centre until June 30. Matar’s work focuses mainly on girls and women. Earlier projects recorded the lives of women and children in the Middle East, and over the past three years she has been exploring age transitions of girls and women in the Middle East as well as in the USA. At Toot Yung, the series Ordinary Lives, Girl in Her Room and L’Enfant-Femme will be exhibited.
Matar was born and raised in Lebanon and moved to the US in 1984. She trained as an architect before studying photography, which she went on to teach in Lebanese refugee camps. Her accolades include winning the 2010 Unicef Picture of the Year Award and her images are in the permanent collections of several museums worldwide.
