Born in Morocco but artistically trained in Paris, Lalla Essaydi created the 'Converging Territories' series as a way to examine the culture she grew up in from a Western perspective. In this series, Essaydi poses women covered in clothing with few areas of exposed skin. The clothing, as well as the room, is covered with Islamic calligraphy. Islamic calligraphy as an art form was once inaccessible to women and through these images, the women are given a voice through this written word.
