Omar Ayyashi will address gender equality in an exhibition running at the Photographic Society of Gipuzkoa
Entitled ‘N5’, the show includes photographs of Belén Rueda, Paz Vega, Rossy de Palma, Bárbara Lennie and Cayetana Guillén Cuervo, among other actresses
Wednesday, September 15th, 2021

From today and until October 7, the Photographic Society of Gipuzkoa will host an exhibition by the photographer Omar Ayyashi on gender equality in the shape of 16 pictures featuring Belén Rueda, Mina El Hammani, Anna Castillo, Paz Vega, Rossy de Palma, Ester Expósito, Amaia Salamanca, Elena Furiase, Cayetana Guillén Cuervo, Juan Acosta, Bárbara Lennie and Jedet Sánchez. In the images, the actresses wear designs by Manuel Fernández with the intervention of artists including Manolo Valdés, Juan Genovés, Okuda San Miguel, Grimanessa Amoros and Luis Gordillo.

Having shown in Madrid and Malaga, the N5 exhibition will now run in San Sebastian during the Festival. The project stems from an idea devised by Omar Ayyashi and the designer Manuel Fernández for the Fashion Art Institute addressing gender equality, the fifth of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) established by the United Nations in its 2030 Agenda. This is a solidarity project whose profits will go to different NGOs whose priorities include gender equality. The exhibition is curated by Javier S. Jiménez (Intramurs).

This isn’t the first time that Omar Ayyashi, a photographer of Palestinian origin born in Bilbao and living in Madrid, has been involved in solidarity projects. In 2018 the Royal Tapestry Factory ran #ReciclaFuturo, for which he received the Best Social Communication Award 2018 from the Fundación para el Fomento del Desarrollo y la Integración (FDI). A year later he created the exhibition X_ELLAS, whose profits went to the fight against the trafficking of women. Ayyashi regularly collaborates with prestigious publications that print his work on fashion, personalities and places worldwide.
