Nueva Luz Artists Myra Greene and Sama Alshaibi in NYC Soon

From the En Foco website:
“En Foco’s Touring Gallery Presents Myra Greene and Sama Alshaibi

Join us for two fabulous opportunities to meet Nueva Luz artists


Both artists have been published by En Foco, in Nueva Luz photographic journal.

Palestinian Iraqi photographer Sama Alshaibi uses her body as a symbol to understand the impact of war and exile, and the implications for her child and future generations.

African American artist Myra Greene poses the question, “what do people see when they look at me. Am I nothing but black?” Using a photographic process popular during the times of slavery, she creates close-ups of her features to explore perceptions.

  1. Hello,

    I’d like to point out that I am half Iraqi, not half Israeli. I know the mistake comes from an Enfoco mailer. Could you please fix?
    You can delete or keep the comment.

    Thank you,

    Sama Alshaibi
