CONFLICTED...REBELLIOUS...ADAMENT ABOUT HER TRUTH.... PROUD!!
Were all the words I was left with after admiring Zineb's work. Born in 1963 in France of traditional Muslim Algerian parents. Just like any individual who's born in the west, Zenib is a little conflicted between both cultures..
In my opinion* (please remenber that it's just my own) she is at turns rebellious against some Islamic and tradional aspects and proud to the P of her of her parents and origins...
Another interesting thing to me is that she's 1 of the few artists that I know who loves her own camera, most people hide behind their lenses but she plays the game with great zeale...
