Photographer's Note

People in Yemen are lovely, hospitable and wonderful.
However, as a foreigner I cannot help to be baffled at the position women seem to have in their society. In Yemen women are reduced to ghosts, or shadows.

You barely see any women in the streets, and when you do they are either with their male relatives, or the rare times they are alone, they are going from point A to point B, but never do they linger outside.

All service businesses cater to men: restaurants, hair saloons, tea houses, qat dens.

Maybe I am culturally insensitive, but I can't help but see some cruelty in this reality.
