I was commissioned by HAPAX to create new work for their fourth issue ( Summer 2023).

I invited Bahraini poet Ali Al-Jamri to collaborate with me and we worked on a photo and text series exploring the symbolism of the pink Oleander, a pretty yet highly poisonous flower found abundantly in Bahrain. Charles Belgrave was the British Advisor to Bahrain's rulers from 1926 to 1957 and a passionate gardener. He introduced the Oleander to Bahrain. This bloom, referred locally as the 'Advisor's Flower', served as our starting point to delve into Bahrain's colonial history through its nature.
