Personally connecting with the subjects of her street portraits, Amanda El Jaouhari transitions from observer to participant in “Soulful Strangers.” Challenging ideas of race, gender, and socioeconomic status by photographing the essence of what it means to be human, the soul, the artist invites you to see yourself in the reflections of others. www.amandadeljaouhari.com.
In “Journey to The Good Life,” artist Kulsum Tasnif tells the story of migrants and refugees in various phases of their journeys. Through the use of cultural patterns, illustrations, Arabic calligraphy, and audio accounts (only during reception), her work strives to connect the audience with the universal human struggle of loss, pain, and the basic need for survival.
