Clothbound hardcover, Edition of 1,000 copies, signed.

‘Jeddah Diary’ is the extraordinary debut of Magnum photographer Olivia Arthur. Having worked extensively on women’s issues throughout Eastern Europe, Iran, Turkey and North Africa, this is her first book on the subject.

Through a selection of anecdotes and photographs, Jeddah Diary opens up the strange and paradoxical world that Saudi girls inhabit. Hidden behind high walls, shrouded in social rules and the ubiquitous abaya, Olivia finds a world inside the bubble which is not as conservative as it might seem. But things are complicated, behaviours are carefully matched to place and circumstance, identities need to be protected and cameras are almost always unwelcome. Steering clear of Western clichés about Saudi women, Olivia allows us glimpses into a world that is normally tightly sealed from the eyes of outsiders.
