Cultural Palette Series: The Colours of Kuwait

 

Kuwait is a vivid palette of peoples hailing from the different regions of the Middle East and across the globe, and blended into tightly-knit communities that breathe in diverse representations of beliefs, outlooks and traditions. This photo series showcases such various inter-cultural realities within the country, deemed in perspective, through an array of garments worn by residents and citizens alike.
