No doubt you remember Fatima's story. She wrote to say she was moved by my readers' supportive comments. We began corresponding and she kindly agreed to show some of her beautiful photos on Paris Parfait.
Fatima's plight is one with which all too many women can identify, no matter where they call home. Happily, Fatima's story has a positive outcome. Expressing herself through photography helped Fatima find her way out of depression and despair. She had the great courage to leave her family in Abu Dhabi, after they sadly chose so-called "honor" over truth and justice. Fatima has forged a new life in the United States, where she is surrounded with good friends, art and photography.
I told Fatima that nothing I could write could do justice to her photos, so powerful in their stark simplicity.
