In the series Forgotten Women, Evar explores the notion of archiving and reliving memories by imaging ancestral Kurdish relatives. The combination of photographic material taken over the past century and the fabric of the traditional kuffiyeh creates a fluid transition between the known and unknown. These photographs vary not just in era, but also in aspects respective to their time, including fashion, sense of religion, visuals of labor, education, familial norms, cultural values, and social interactions. Evar's mother is the primary protagonist throughout this series; however, the artist also sheds light on the anonymity of many Kurdish women whose faces remain in print yet names have been forgotten.
