Created a series of drawings based on passport photographs and inspired by phorographs made between 1935 and 1970 by Armenian photographer Antranik Anouchian. The series of 198 drawings evenly divided between men and women - the series include, women with necklaces, men in checkered shirts and women in veils. Her artists statement on this series said:
As a result of living in Saudi Arabia, a country that forbid any use of public photographic/video documentation, the only images permissible were that of the passport photo. As a woman, I was only able to leave the city and travel within the country with written permission from my father and the accompaniment of an Iqama or in-country passport. Consequently, the passport photo not only identified me but came to represent the opportunity to exist as a somewhat free individual.
