Photographic research that focuses on the impression of the Muslim community that has been transmitted by the media is rooted in the social and political issues that are prevalent in the Middle East. As a foreigner in the US myself, I have personally seen the pain and agony that Muslims encounter when they face criticism, disrespect, and discrimination. A lot of it is centered on appearance. The, traditional and often distinct, dressing style of the many countries in which Islam is the official religion is inspired by robes, veils and headdresses; the meaning of the patterns and colors varies depending the country. For men and women, the use of veils and headscarf is more than the stereotyped idea that our society has formed. These fabrics and the different ways it’s folded represents the heritage and devotion these people feel towards their culture and religion. Their pain has inspired me to bring understanding to the judgmental environment that has been created.
