Samira, veiled woman from Salalah, Oman

Newer Older

This is a real challenge to take picture of the omani women wearing niqab or burka without a 300mm zoom!
Samira from Salalah accepted after she saw her friend Mouna coming back to her with a Polaroid.Like Mouna, many women in Oman tend to put some cream on their faces to the skin more white, as men prefer it to the black one. Few years ago, black people were still slaves in Oman, so like in Africa, many women use those dangerous creams that can lead to skin cancer... I just sniffed the cream, and was nearly blind!
