Benchallal's “Sisters” series includes images of Muslim women in Algeria, Palestine, Bosnia, Burma, Malaysia, Iran, and France. An award-wining photojournalist, Benchallal is French-Algerian and eventually returned to visit her family’s home country on a personal quest to document the everyday life of Muslim women there. That gave rise to her long-term personal project documenting Muslim women worldwide, capturing them in their private and public lives. Exhibition viewing and reception to follow.
