Never Home: Photos by Bilo Hussein

Published Jun 22, 2014

Thought-provoking photographic collages by New York-based photographer Bilo Hussein.

In this ongoing project, Bilo explores the sense of segregation in religion, culture and gender that she experienced as a child growing up in Saudi Arabia, as well as the wish to find a place where she can fit in, regardless of belief.

“The ‘layers’ I incorporate into these images after shooting the portraits themselves are meant to evoke the very thoughts and feelings of my subjects. These layers consist of places and patterns I have fallen in love with since my move to New York City. In a sense, these ‘internal’ images represent the process of coming to accept a new culture as one’s own. But they are also saying that inside each displaced one is an abundance of emotion, thought and experience that in many cultures is never allowed to come out.”

– Bilo Hussein
