My Lens

The My Lens project asks you to show us your culture through your own lens, using a disposable camera to take photographs over 24 hours. 

Through putting the camera into the hands of those who live within the culture we hope to explore different perspectives from all corners of the region. 

Galleries of these photographs are displayed here, and exist as one of the ways we are trying to  move towards a more inclusive, accurate, and diverse representation of Middle Eastern culture.
