Anderman Photography Lecture: Lalla Essaydi

Drawing from her perspective and experience growing up in Morocco and now living in the United States, Lalla Essaydi creates photographs of women that express the richness and complexity of identity.  Essaydi utilizes materials such as henna, calligraphy, textiles, bullets, and architectural spaces to adorn/veil the bodies as well as create the environment that surrounds the women in these performative photographs. Her work disrupts traditional gender roles of Islamic culture and challenges cultural misconceptions. Lalla Essaydi explains, "In my art, I wish to present myself through multiple lenses -- as artist, as Moroccan, as traditionalist, as Liberal, as Muslim.  In short, I invite viewers to resist stereotypes."

The Anderman Photography Lecture Series presents talks by the preeminent creators and thinkers in photography today. Sponsored by the DAM Photography Department. Series funding is generously provided by Evan and Elizabeth Anderman.
