She Who Tells a Story: Women Photographers from Iran and the Arab WorldShe Who Tells a Story: Women Photographers from Iran and the Arab World

Published by MFA Publications.
Text by Kristen Gresh. Foreword by Michket Krifa.

She Who Tells a Story introduces the pioneering work of 12 leading women photographers from Iran and the Arab world: Jananne Al-Ani, Boushra Almutawakel, Gohar Dashti, Rana El Nemr, Lalla Essaydi, Shadi Ghadirian, Tanya Habjouqa, Rula Halawani, Nermine Hammam, Rania Matar, Shirin Neshat and Newsha Tavakolian. As the Middle East has undergone unparalleled change over the past 20 years, and national and personal identities have been dismantled and rebuilt, these artists have tackled the very notion of representation with passion and power. Their provocative images, which range in style from photojournalism to staged and manipulated visions, explore themes of gender stereotypes, war and peace, and personal life, all the while confronting nostalgic Western notions about women of the Orient and exploring the complex political and social landscapes of their home regions. Enhanced with biographical and interpretive essays, and including more than 100 stunning reproductions, this book challenges us to set aside preconceptions about this part of the world and share in the vision of a group of vibrant artists as they claim the right to tell their own stories in images of great sophistication, expressiveness and beauty.

Living Under The Crescent MoonLiving Under The Crescent Moon

Domestic Culture in the Arab World

Published by Vitra Design Museum.
Edited by Alexander von Vegesack, Mateo Kries. Foreword by Alexander von Vegesack, Mateo Kries, Wim Pijbes, Kosme de Baranano. Text by Sebastien Boulay, Krin Pütt/Katrin Adolph, Annegret Nippa, Stefano Bianca, Eugen Wirth, Mateo Kries.

Living under the Crescent Moon demonstrates the diversity of domestic lifestyles to be found from Morocco to Syria and the Arab Peninsula: from the nomadic tents of the Tuareg or Bedouins to Moroccan casbahs; from the grand courtyard houses in cities such as Marrakesh, Damascus or Cairo, to buildings by twentieth-century architects. A series of essays and evocative pictures by leading photographers detail functional and fascinating examples of residential architecture alongside solutions for daily tasks and everyday objects. Contributors include Stefano Bianca, Sébastien Boulay, Mateo Kries, Annegret Nippa, Karin Pütt and Eugen Wirth, as well as photos by Deidi von Schaewen, Bruno Barbey, Thierry Mauger and Pascal & Maria Maréchaux.

Kai Wiedenhöfer: Book of DestructionKai Wiedenhöfer: Book of Destruction

Published by Steidl.

For more than 20 years Kai Wiedenhöfer has been taking photographs in the Middle East, a place where many journalists and photographers have covered the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Yet Wiedenhöfer is unique in that he concentrates exclusively on Gaza, and often remains there to take photos long after the media has moved onto more 'pressing' news stories. Even in 2009 after the offensive of the Israeli army, Wiedenhöfer remained in Gaza. During this time he took disturbingly quiet, almost repetitive pictures of the bleak aftermath of the war that form The Book of Destruction. Wiedenhöfer´s images of crumbling ruins and maimed civilians are a powerful landscape of disquiet and destruction.

Shirin Neshat: AfterwardsShirin Neshat: Afterwards

Published by Silvana Editorale.
Edited and interview by Abdellah Karroum. Foreword by H.E. Sheikha Mayassa. Text by Negar Azimi, Steven Henry Madoff.

In this book and the exhibition it accompanies, Shirin Neshat (born 1957) looks at the connections between ancient history and the politics of the present in works that employ photography, calligraphy, poetry and filmmaking to explore the primal concepts of violence, passion and love that drive human history. These include the various photographic series Neshat produced in the early 1990s and two video installations that address the historical, cultural and political realities on which the artist has focused for the past 30 years. In the photographic series Women of Allah (1993-97), the artist expresses her position on the situation in Iran following the Islamic Revolution in 1979. In her more recent series, The Book of Kings (2012) and Our House Is on Fire (2013), Neshat responds to political events throughout the Arab world, capturing the emotions of people she met after the Arab Spring.

Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian: Cosmic GeometryMonir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian: Cosmic Geometry

Published by Damiani/Third Line.
Edited by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Karen Marta. Text by Nader Ardalan, Media Farzin, Eleanor Sims. Conversation with Hans Ulrich Obrist.

Born in 1924 in the ancient Persian city of Qazvin, Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian spent her childhood in a grand old house replete with stained glass, wall paintings and nightingales. Coming of age during World War II, she left occupied Iran and audaciously set out for New York, where she was quickly absorbed into the city's thriving avant garde. In the decades to follow, during successive exiles in Tehran and New York, Farmanfarmaian developed an intuitive yet painstakingly crafted artistic practice in mirror mosaic and reverse-painted glass that weds the cosmic patterning of her Iranian heritage with the rhythms of modern Western geometric abstraction. This book is the first substantial survey of Farmanfarmaian's acclaimed geometric works, and features an in-depth interview by Hans Ulrich Obrist; critical essays by Nader Ardalan, Media Farzin and Eleanor Sims; warm tributes by Farmanfarmaian's friends Etel Adnan, Siah Armajani, caraballo-farman, Golnaz Fathi, Hadi Hazavei, Susan Hefuna, Aziz Isham, Rose Issa, Faryar Javaherian, Abbas Kiarostami, Shirin Neshat, Donna Stein and Frank Stella; an excerpt from The Sense of Unity: The Sufi Tradition in Persian Architecture by Nader Ardalan and Laleh Bakhtiar (1973); and an annotated timeline of Farmanfarmaian's life by Negar Azimi.

Nicoló Degiorgis: Hidden IslamNicoló Degiorgis: Hidden Islam

Islamic Makeshift Places of Worship in North East Italy, 2009-2013

Published by Rorhof.
Edited by Nicoló Degiorgis, Martin Parr. Introduction by Martin Parr.

In Italy the right to worship without discrimination is enshrined in the constitution. There are 1.35 million Muslims in Italy and yet, officially, only eight mosques in the whole country. Consequently, the Muslim population has been relegated to a huge number of makeshift places of worship; garages, shops, warehouses and old factories have become host to prayer. Hidden Islam offers a peek inside Italy's invisible Islam. Photographer Nicolò Degiorgis explores the various temporary mosques in Northeast Italy, where anti-Islamic campaigns and the shortage of worship spaces are particularly acute. Seemingly dull black-and-white images of the diverse building exteriors are printed on folded pages, but upon opening the gatefold, full-color scenes inside these mosques are revealed. The images are arranged by building type (shop, warehouse, apartment).

Scarlett Coten: Still AliveScarlett Coten: Still Alive

Published by Actes Sud.
Text by Scarlett Coten.

Between 2000 and 2002, French photographer Scarlett Coten traveled throughout Egypt's Sinai desert, recording her encounters with the region's inhabitants, the Bedouins. Beyond the framework of sociological or documentary journalism, this intimate travelogue captures Coten's interactions with a semi-tribal people, and reveals the surprising persistence of Bedouin culture and traditions in a rapidly changing world.
