Huda Abdulmughni (b. 1964) is a Kuwaiti photographer whose work focuses on portraiture and place. Starting from her time as an interior design student in Amman in the late 1980’s, Abdulmughni’s images and photographic projects are inspired by her curiosity for the world around her and in particular by people’s own stories. She sets her subjects in their own unaltered environments, making use of natural light and familiar objects. Being adept at analogue and digital photography, Abdulmughni switches between both media depending on the subject in question.
