JEDDAH DIARY OLIVIA ARTHUR

Through a selection of anecdotes and photographs, Jeddah Diary opens up the strange and paradoxical world that Saudi girls inhabit. Hidden behind high walls, shrouded in social rules and the ubiquitous abaya, Olivia finds a world inside the bubble which is not as conservative as it might seem. But things are complicated, behaviours are carefully matched to place and circumstance, identities need to be protected and cameras are almost always unwelcome.

Steering clear of Western cliches about Saudi women Olivia allows us glimpses into a world that is ordinarily tightly sealed from all outsiders.
