In 2009, London-based photographer Olivia Arthur was invited by the British Council to teach a photo workshop to a group of women in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. Her experience there evolved into a balance of teacher and student, and was the impetus for Jeddah Diary, a series documenting the lives of young Saudi women. Arthur took three subsequent trips back to Jeddah, capturing an intimate portrait of these women combined with the underlying restrictive social mores that surround them.
