Invitation | German

Over the past few years, Melina Papageorgiou has made several trips to Muslim countries – among them Doha and Abu Dhabi – and has photographed women in their burkinis.With her comprehensive and heterogeneous picture series, which the Berlin-based photographer undertook following her own inspiration, Melina Papageorgiou tells us her own story: the story of her visits with several families, and her view of this still exotic region. The series also features images of an inhospitable landscape with selected details of vegetation, streets, and portraits of the people who live there. Matthias Harder
