This remarkable collection of photographic 'portraits' of leading businesswomen from right across the Arab world is a unique testament to the impact made on business by prominent Arab women. Art photographer Jacqueline Hassink, internationally recognised for her representations of the world of economic power, expresses these portraits through photographic explorations of the private and business domains of these powerful women. Designed by award winning book designer Irma Boom, this beautifully illustrated, full-colour work is introduced by leading photography critic Charlotte Cotton and includes an essay by the prominent economist Dr. Heba Handoussa.
