Yemen: Yemen Through Our Lenses Exhibition

Yemeni journalist and blogger Afrah Nasser is using social media to raise funds to stage a photography exhibition in Stockholm, Sweden.

Her plan is to purchase high quality photographs from Yemeni photographers, whose work has captured important moments in Yemen's contemporary history, rent an exhibition hall in Stockholm, and feature those pictures.

Afrah wrote on her Facebook page about the exhibition, which she has entitled: “Yemen Through Our Lenses.”

On her fund-raising effort, she writes:

“This is a project I'm working on for Yemen's photography art. It's a photography exhibition about Yemen by Yemeni photographers here in Stockholm. I'm using a crowd-funding website to collect the funds. Basically, it's YOU who can make this happen. No small donation is overlooked. 5 euros can make a big difference. Please support the exhibition and Yemeni photographers.”

Take a look at this video made by the brave blogger and her donation project file at Ulule.

The idea is to raise funds to stage an exhibition to raise awareness about Yemen and support emerging Yemeni photographers. Afrah calls on viewers to help her make this exhibition a reality.

Afrah continues:

I think this project is so important because it would highlight aspects on Yemen by Yemeni photographers who usually don't get the chance to spread their message internationally as they wish like to do. Plus, since Yemen is going through tough times, this could be one of the ways to support it.
