Amira Al Sharif needs your support

Amira Al Sharif is a young Yemeni photographer currently enrolled at the International Center for Photography, and she needs your help. It’s a great opportunity to contribute directly to increasing diversity in the photography industry. Her project, “Unveiling Misconceptions: A Muslim Woman Documents Lives of American Women,” is a look at the lives of young women in America and Yemen, and looks promising. Watch the video at her kickstarter page to hearing her speak about the trouble she encounters as a female photojournalist in Yemen. She’s got courage to spare, and talent to back it up. Since I first saw the link, she’s raised a couple thousand dollars, but that’s only halfway to the goal. Do consider joining her list of supporters.
