Yasmine Bendjoudi is a British Algerian Arab arts & culture writer, photographer and spoken word poet. Inspired by her own hybrid identity – she is interested in social displacement and cultural critical thinking in North Africa and the Middle East. Her poetry uses this as launch point into exploring all human feelings from a place of positive empowerment. Each of her poems present three potential Algerian mother tongues: (English, French and Darija or modern Algerian Arabic) to express her multicultural memory. Her writing and photography conveys hidden artistic and cultural narratives of the Arab world and diaspora.
Here you will find a compilation of selected photographs and writings produced by the Algeria-born Londoner in Doha where she has resided and across the Arab region, in which she spends most of her time exploring with greater depth.
