Nazar - Arab eyes

Ymane Fakhir

UN ANGE PASSE (2003)

Ymane Fakhir photographed a wedding in the land of her birth, Morocco. She sees it as a colourful spectacle, filled purely with actors: everything is made up, seduction and theatre. A Moroccan wedding is prepared down to the smallest details, with nothing left to chance. The bridal pair are placed on a couch on a platform, so that all the guests can clearly see them. Fakhir sees this as the antithesis of the ordinary life of the Moroccan woman. Normally she is stimulated to be as good as unconscious of her body and presence. During the wedding she is suddenly the centre of attention and is exhibited like an object, clothed according to the dictates of fashion and religion.
