Her projects have entailed a fair degree of traveling, which serves as a way of lifitng inspiration for her work.

The Craftsmanship of the Kufiya

BY BRIAN MEGENS
@ VOL 29 ON FEB 29, 2016

"Too many times, we make judgements on people and situations without knowing anything about them... I decided to do a photography project, which is focusing on people, not the conflict, not the violence."

In The Craftsmanship of the Kufiya from PechaKucha Night Maastricht  Vol. 29, photographer Brian Megens tells the story about his photography project ‘The Other Side of Palestine’. In this project he focuses on life and the people of the West Bank. He made several stories throughout the country. During his stay in Palestine, Brian got intrigued with the kufiya, known in the West as the ‘Arafat scarf’. In his presentation, ‘The Craftsmanship of the Kufiya’ Brian will tell us more about this traditional Arabic product that won his admiration.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesday, May 31st, 2016.
