Museum Turns Lens On The Middle East

The British Museum has acquired photographs by nine Middle Eastern artists tackling topics such as the fallout of the Syrian civil war and the tragic plight of refugees. The UK charity, The Art Fund, supported the acquisitions as part of an ongoing initiative launched in 2009 that facilitates collecting Middle Eastern photography at both the Victoria and Albert Museum and the British Museum. Pictured is Leila Alaoui‘s “Natreen” (2013).
