My collaborator for Cartographies of Loss, Soheila Ghaussy, is a writer whose work speaks of the loss of freedom for Afghani women due to political intolerance and male authority. The veil became a mandated covering which removes the identity of a woman. Hair as a symbol of power and personal and sexual identity is removed by the veil. This series, Veil, serves as a gesture of re-empowerment for Afghani women.
