Nazar - Arab eyes

Mezgeen Aziz Rasheed

PHOTOCOLLAGES (1991-2001)

Although it was almost impossible to keep informed about international developments, Iraqi photography did not stand still under the regime of Saddam Hussein. A good example is Mezgeen Aziz Rasheed, born in 1962 and of Kurdish background. After the fall of Saddam it appeared that she had been making photo collages for ten years, which had even been shown in Iraq. A number of Italian photographers were so impressed with her work that they decided to introduce it to the West. Rasheed’s collages – scraps from dreams and nightmares – are comprised of portraits, images of greatly enlarged objects, letters, symbols, and other things. She expresses the problematic relationships between men and women, man and God, and men and power.
