Spotlight on Kuwaiti talent: May Alkharafi

May Alkharafi has been absent from the Kuwaiti art scene for a while now because she has been super busy in New York getting her MFA in photography. And as I always say education > uhm ... everything really.

So naturally I was super excited when I stumbled upon her tumblr which has some of her recent works in progress. I know May from back in Kuwait, where she was one of the first ladies I know to sport a Nikon and was/is the proud owner of a groovy retro studio. If you've been there, you know what I'm talking about.

These are some of my favourite photos. I absolutely adore her style; conceptual meets mundane. She told me that she is currently working on her thesis, which is about the women of Kuwait. I simply cannot wait to see it, best of luck May.

- May kindly gave me permission to post a few of her photos here. Please ask her for permission if you want to repost her photos via her email I honestly feel stupid typing this but after what happened with f2o and her designs.. seriously!
