The Palestinian, Australian-raised artist crystallizes the universal but rarely captured experience of over saturated, intense feelings and imperfect relationships. Her protagonists give voice to the vast spectrum of emotion, spanning the desire for inner peace, true love, fear of commitment, playful ambivalence towards life and the paradox of wanting intimacy but craving isolation. Known for her explicit exploration into the intimate psyche of millennial women, Bahbah empowers her audience to embrace indulgence and self-love in all its forms. Smashing the stereotype of female emotion being a hindrance, her storytelling harnesses the power of breaking taboo and celebrates the liberation of transparency and desire.
"My style of photography has definitely been inspired by cinema. I am really drawn to foreign films, particularly because of how I experience and interact with them. While the beauty of foreign films is kept at bay because of cultural incomprehension, the translated subtitles serve as an active attempt to understanding them."
