A personal documentary project interviewing and photographing Muslims in London and beyond, in an attempt to create interfaith dialogue by addressing topics related to race, gender, sexual identity, faith and religion.
UK/ Kyrgyzstan, 2017- 2018
Despite numbering near to two billion people across virtually every culture on the planet, the media often paints a picture of Muslims all being one of the same. This project is an attempt to bridge gaps of understanding, particularly aimed at those who may not have the opportunity or may be reluctant to strike up a conversation with a Muslim stranger, through sharing the stories and experiences of Muslims in London and beyond. I believe if we take the time to listen, we often find that we have far more in common than the media would have us believe.
