Cherine Fahd (b. 1974) has worked for two decades with
documentary modes of image making. Much of her early
works presented a surrealist engagement with spontaneous
actions that involved hiding herself and her subjects from
view, as well as the documentation of peculiar gestures.
Currently, she continues to test the distinctions between the
staged and unstaged image, while asking questions of the
ways we perform for the camera.
