I feel creatively emboldened to personally say something on the subjects that I am documenting. In terms of how it is produced, intellectually I am more excited than I have been in years. I am envisioning so many more possibilities for the work ... I feel for first time empowered on my own terms. We are calling our own shots and have created somewhat of our own institution.
An interview with the six-woman Middle Eastern documentary photography collective Rawiya, whose name means "female narrator" in Arabic.

The individual members' websites:
Tanya Habjouqa
Tamara Abdul Hadi
Myriam Abdelaziz
Laura Boushnak
Newsha Tavakolian
Dalia Khamissy
Rawiya has ongoing exhibitions at Bildmuseet in Umeå, Sweden, and The New Art Exchange in Nottingham, England.
