Photographer Rania Matar: Telling Women’s Stories

The Massachusetts Cultural Council (MCC) is celebrating 40 Years of Fellowships by sharing video interviews with some of the extraordinary artists who have received Artist Fellowships since the program’s inception in 1975.

We’re thrilled to share our first interview, with Rania Matar (Photography Fellow ’11, ’07).

“Every single person here has a story.” Rania Matar tells women’s stories through exquisitely personal photography, and we were honored to discuss her work and career in the making of this video. Stay tuned for future videos in the 40 Years of Fellowships project.

In the meantime, here’s how you can participate:
