This portrait session with Nayiab is one of my favorites. Nayiab and I set out to create some images last year with some hand-knitted pieces made by Bosnian refugees whose work is supported by Creatively Empowered Women Design Studio. I was super inspired by the space CEW Design has created for women coping with PTSD from experiencing war, genocide and the daunting endeavor of relocating to a far, distant and unfamiliar land. CEW combines art therapy and economic empowerment for these women to regain a foothold on life and re-emerge as resilient, capable and confident women. Check out the pieces on Nayiab and take a look at CEW's website when you have a chance!
