Jeddah Diary is a journey inside the community of a group of young female friends in Saudi Arabia.

Olivia Arthur won access into what she calls a "women-bubble" (from which men are excluded). She tells us the story of these women stuck between the over-protection of luxury and profusion (where liberties do exist, among women) and the life hidden behind the burka and controled by the father or the husband.

This book was shortlisted for the "Aperture Foundation / Paris Photo First Book Award" in 2012.
