About the exhibition catalogue

The exhibition, In Her Image: Photographs by Rania Matar, brings together four bodies of work by the Lebanese-American photographer Rania Matar that trace the development of female identity through portraiture. Depicting transitional moments of life, from young girlhood to middle age, Matar's works address personal and collective identity through photographs mining female adolescence and womanhood. Photographing girls and women in both the United States and the Middle East, the artist shows how the forces that shape female identity transcend cultural and geographic boundaries.

In Her Image: Photographs by Rania Matar is on display at the Amon Carter Museum, December 23, 2017 - June 17, 2018.
