Lily Bandak: “A Life’s Work in Pictures”

Diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis at the peak of her career, she overcame exceptional odds, designing a camera mount attached to her wheelchair and went back to photographing again. Queen Noor and the late King Hussein of Jordan were among the first Arab leaders to invite Ms. Bandak to photograph in a wheelchair.
