Behind the Lens 2020: Women in Photography
While we are still not able to open the doors to our galleries we are presenting features on the artists we invited to exhibit in our current exhibition. These snapshots provide a brief look and a little insight into the artists that we invited to exhibit in celebration of Women’s History Month. We are presenting the artists invited to participate in Behind the Lens 2020: Women in Photography and today we feature Zéna Tadmoury.
The call for our first online exhibition, Behind the Lens Plus is ongoing with work being presented in bi-weekly collections. The first installment is available at https://www.riphotocenter.org/behind-the-lens-2020-plus/ entry is still open.
About: Zéna Tadmoury
Zéna Tadmoury graduated Moses Brown in 2019 and is currently attending Parsons Paris. She is pursuing a major in art and business. Zéna’s body of work is eclectic varying from self portraits to her travels abroad. Her portraits centralize on female identity and feminist ideals.
Artist Statement: Self Discovery
The central idea of my project is women emerging from the mold created by society and the patriarchy, in which all the boundaries have been drawn by men. My concentration is on a series of self portraits intended to track the timeline of a woman who is weak in the shadow cast by men but develops independence by finding strength through self discovery.
