Olivia Arthur

Olivia Arthur (b. 1980) studied mathematics before pursuing photojournalism at the London College of Printing. A Britisher, she began her career abroad, working as a photographer in India starting in 2003. Her work to date focuses on women and the East-West cultural divide, with projects like “The Middle Distance” sparked during a one year residency at the cultural incubator, Fabrica. Arthur published her first book, Jeddah Diary, in 2012, opening up the world of young women in Saudi Arabia.
