DUBAI: Arab News set up a gallery exhibition of “TheFace: Portraits of the Kingdom” at an Arab Media Forum event in Dubai on Thursday.

The gallery, taken by Arab News’ Head of Photography Ziyad Alarfaj, displayed a number of portraits of successful professional Saudi women to shed light on the empowerment of women in workplace under Vision 2030.

 “I was always passionate about story-telling, and being a visual person, I wanted to tell the story of the Saudi people through photographs,” Alarfaj said, adding that “I've lived outside of Saudi Arabia for more the 27 years, but I am always asked about my country, so it’s all about showing who we are, as we are.”

Among the attendees of the gallery was the Director General of the Government of Dubai Media Office, Mona Al Marri.

The project, titled TheFace: Portraits from the Kingdom, captures the true essence of professional Saudi women across the kingdom in order to highlight their positive impact and empowerment in the workplace.
