Hikayat (Stories)

Hikāyāt (حكايات) is an Arabic word popularly used to refer to tales and short stories, especially ones that are imaginatively recounted.

This project reflects on personal feelings of spiritual and earthly matters. The dominant themes are of identity and belonging, separation and pain, loss and death. Old and new photographic images are combined with poetic writings in Arabic by Mahmoud Darwish, Samih al-Qasim, Jalaluddin al-Rumi and Khalil Gibran. The words are handwritten onto photogravure prints, encircling images of people and objects, adding further layers of meaning.
