In his series Queens, Fares Cachoux pays homage to the women of the Middle East and Arab World with their suffering due to unjust laws, wars, or even the degradation of the environment in the region. Each queen, like every single Middle Eastern woman, is different: in her appearance, religion, attributes, color palette, and feelings. By representing the diversity of female experiences who live in the same region Cachoux destroys the unified stereotypical image of Arab women in the West. Nonetheless, the artist also stresses out the importance of their unity in their connection to their environment as each of the queens could be mother earth.
