Fardowsa Hussein and Hana Mire: An exhibition at the Somali Arts Foundation
Fardowsa Hussein is a documentary photographer and her work ranges from covering humanitarian crises to everyday life in Somalia.
Still Life is a contemporary photography exhibition capturing people and moments in Somalia. Both photographers in the exhibition, Fardowsa Hussein (b. 1995) and Hana Mire (b. 1990), are first film-makers and then photographers. Due to this, they both have a keen, intimate gaze with which they see the world through. The result? Luscious and personal images, as though they are stills from a film, dreamy and evocative. Through their sympathetic lens, we are able to experience the extraordinary, in ordinary daily scenes from around Somalia.
Hana Mire is currently directing and producing her first feature length documentary.
