For more than five years, Human Rights Watch researcher Samer Muscati has been documenting some of humanity’s darkest acts, focusing his attention on the violation of the rights of women and girls around the world. Increasingly, he has explored photography’s capacity to expand our understanding of the plight and perseverance of others.
Gathering the testimony of his subjects is often harrowing, and Muscati has found the medium invaluable in processing his experience, and connecting with his subjects. This exhibition pulls together the highs and lows Muscati has borne witness to, offering a moving account of the shifting fates of women and girls in a period of profound global transition.
