Zaibunnisa by Maryam Wahid


Full colour publication accompanying the exhibition Zaibunnisa, featuring a selection of images and accompanying text by Maryam Wahid. Including a foreword by Deborah Kermode, CEO & Artistic Director at MAC, and an essay by Bindi Vora, Curator at Autograph.


This is Maryam Wahid’s first major photographic exhibition in her home city of Birmingham. Zaibunnisa, meaning ‘the beauty of women’ refers to Wahid’s mother’s birth name prior to emigrating from Pakistan to the UK in 1982 for an arranged marriage. The photographs tell the story of Wahid and her mother’s journey to Lahore in 2019, Wahid’s first-ever trip to Pakistan and her mother’s first visit in twenty years.
