Since moving to New York from Kuwait City, Maha Alasaker learned that the everyday American has no conception of what daily life is like for women in modern-day Kuwait. Seeking to address this, Alasaker began making portraits of women in their bedrooms and asking them about their lives.
With photographs by Maha Alasaker, contributions by Nada Faris and a foreword by Lulu Al-Sabah.
