Artist Rania Matar was born and raised in Lebanon and moved to the U.S. in 1984. Originally trained as an architect, she studied photography which has become her medium of choice. Matar has created several series that depict the effect of conflict on the lives of ordinary Lebanese as well as Syrian refugees. Her work focuses on universality, humanity and dignity.
