DUBAI: Arab News set up a gallery exhibition of “TheFace: Portraits of the Kingdom” at an Arab Media Forum event in Dubai on Thursday.
The gallery, taken by Arab News’ Head of Photography Ziyad Alarfaj, displayed a number of portraits of successful professional Saudi women to shed light on the empowerment of women in workplace under Vision 2030.
“I was always passionate about story-telling, and being a visual person, I wanted to tell the story of the Saudi people through photographs,” Alarfaj said, adding that “I’ve lived outside of Saudi Arabia for more the 27 years, but I am always asked about my country, so it’s all about showing who we are, as we are.”
Among the attendees of the gallery was the Director-General of the Government of Dubai Media Office, Mona Al Marri.
The project, titled The Face: Portraits from the Kingdom, captures the true essence of professional Saudi women across the kingdom in order to highlight their positive impact and empowerment in the workplace.
