"I like to define myself as a Muslim artist, sprung from my native Saudi culture and history.
In my art I am seeking to show signs of the Divine in nature and in Man. For me, light is one
of the many manifestations of God. Which He casts in our path through life to remind us of
His constant presence in ourselves and in every place. Every photograph is a pattern of light
and shade. For me,
my photography is a way to praise God's glory in the universe." (Reem Al Faisal)
