A picture of daily life in Yemen after early 2011 when the Yemeni youth took the streets and forced the ouster of Yemen’s autocratic President, Ali Abdullah Saleh. Yemen, one of the poorest countries in the Arab World, is now experiencing a transition rife with political corruption, unemployment, a real proliferation of AQAP (Al Qaida in the Arab Peninsula) and a depletion of natural resources. But though Yemen continues to feel the consequences post-revolution, people carry on their day to day work, traditional and holiday celebrations, as well as protests in the streets. The photographer documented this everyday existence over the course of a year in Yemen.
