MoMA’s Campaign

The Museum of Modern Art hosts frequent campaigns for photographers from around the world to showcase their work. In its latest issue, MoMA shared submissions focused on ‘people’. And how a portrait could tell a story while connecting with the viewer.

Sending a powerful message!

Enas uses her photography to champion mental health. Her work feeds off her own experiences in dealing with Borderline Personality Disorder. In an earlier interview with LocalBH, Sistani said:

I wanted to portray the effects that words can have on people with mental illness. I have long been said that I was “always too depressed” or that “my mental illness is rubbing off on them” amongst many other things. That alone, could have an adversarial impact on one’s journey towards betterment.
