She Who Tells a Story @ Boston MFA

From the promo of my current fave exhibit at the Boston MFA:

Boushra Almutawakel’s series ‘Mother, Daughter, Doll’ visually protests the covering of young women and the trend toward black veils in her native Yemen. The fading smiles of mother and daughter correspond to the disappearance of their colorful clothing from one picture to the next.

Boushra is one of 12 leading women photographers featured in “She Who Tells a Story: Women Photographers from Iran and the Arab World,” an exhibition of provocative work that challenges perceptions of Middle Eastern identity.
