Ghada Khunji

Wall Whisperers

Photographing “home” in Bahrain has taken Khunji almost 25 years. As she explains, “it took me years abroad to get to a cohesive set of pictures in Bahrain. It took that much time to see my homeland with the same naive eyes that I have when I’m traveling to a new place.” Her work, “The Wall Whisperers”, is a culmination of that journey. Its composition invokes the Tree of Life, a 400-year old mesquite tree in Bahrain made legendary by its standing in an area of the desert, completely free of any water supply. In “Wall Whisperers”, Khunji’s photographs make up the shape of this tree. She states, “In my eyes, it represents the inhabitants of Bahrain. And within each cell, ethnicity, religion, gender, skin tone, language, expression, age and wealth status are whispering different stories.”
