Rania Matar is an American photographer of Middle Eastern heritage. Whether focusing her camera on subjects in Mexico, Haiti, the Middle East or the USA, her photographs are almost always of children. When she photographs her own children, her work is best compared to that of Sally Mann—her children are often nude, messy, provocative, playful… and glorious. My first post on Matar will cover her ‘Family Moments’ series from 2002 to 2005, the earliest years of her children.
