    Such a beautiful explanation of photography and series of work. I was so taken by what Ayesha said about Pakistan, that she had to “make it personal” for herself again. So many expats feel strong emotions about their home countries but are unable to contextual their either positive or negative feelings. I think Ayesha hits the nail on the head when she talks about reconnecting with a place without all the bits of information or news that may taint your judgement. Also, I love being able to learn about contemporary Saudi Arabia through Ayesha. It helps you remember that this world is full of people (and places) who are more alike than different, but live life in unique and wonderful ways.
