Islands of Solitude: a conversation with Hala Al Faysal

“Hala defied the social order – living on her own, without the approval of the family. This meant sacrificing her social class and privileges. It meant losing social guarantees and financial means. It meant living on the outskirts of society. It was choosing the unthinkable – a fall from grace.” A portrait of a proud, independent and brave Syrian artist, by Dana Omari Berg.
