'Too Rich a Soil':

Too Rich a Soil brings together photographers Arpita Shah, Maryam Wahid and Nilupa Yasmin, whose practices are rooted in the exploration of cultural identity. A selection of photographs from Arpita’s Purdah – The Scared Cloth presents South Asian women in Scotland from a variety of backgroundswho choose to practice the tradition of head covering or veiling. Birmingham based Maryam and Nilupa have each created a new series of work. Maryam’s Ek Aurat Ka Safar (A Woman’s Journey) provides a glimpse into Pakistani society and the diverse roles of women from across generations, ethnic backgrounds, religions and social classes. Nilupa uses self-portraiture in series ফুলদানি – Phuldhani (Flowers in a Vase) which with their multi-layered and manipulated surfaces reflect upon femininity and identity.
