Thana Faroq: The Streets Are Not Empty
May 10, 2017 6:57 AM Subscribe
"When war broke out in Sana'a, Yemen's capital, in September 2014, Thana Faroq was accustomed to walking freely through the city. Until then, Faroq, in her mid twenties, had been working as a street photographer. When the bombs began to drop six months later, she resolved to show the world there was still life on Sana'a's streets." Faroq discusses her work (including Everyday Yemen, In Memory of Shattered Windows, and Women Like Us) and photography as connection and conversation. She has previously spoken about the magic of street photography [TED talk, English subtitles available].
