Hey’Ya: Arab Women
More sport! And another sprinter. This striking photo by Brigitte Lacombe is of Ahamada Feta (2011). It's part of an exhibition at Sotheby’s London, Hey’Ya (Let's Go): Arab Women in Sport, which opened today and runs until 11 August (CLICK). The show was commisioned by Qatar Museums Authority to promote women in sport in the Arab World, where Muslims still treat their women like cattle. That reminds me, Saudi Arabian showjumper Dalma Rushdi Malhas (CLICK) failed to qualify for the Olympics, due to a minor injury to her horse. Shame. I was rooting for her. As for this photo, if Brigitte insists on using a computer to remove backgrounds from her shots, she should make sure she removes all of it. Look under Ahamada's crotch.
