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.
