Passepartout is all about documentaries and visual stuff I find worth seeing.

What does an Arab man look like?

So. What does he look like? Does he have a beard? A long “dress”? A camel? What is the expression on his face? And most important, how do you feel about him when you see him like that?

It’s the media, it’s in the films, it’s the distance between us and can be many other factors that influence the way our mind visualizes them. Photojournalist Tamara Abdul Hadi decided to break our voluntary and involuntary stereotypes. She traveled across the Middle East and photographed men…differently.
The project is called “Picture an Arab man“.
Here you can read an interview with Tamara Abdul and to see more and hear her talk about the project, see the video at the end of the post.
