‘Unveiled’ is a series of photographs capturing the Muslim female silhouette, maintaining reverence while presenting an internal narrative paying homage to the women empowering a new generation of proud Muslims thriving in society. Influenced by minimalism and surrealist theory, these images are a contemporary and nuanced interpretation of the “Muslim female” aesthetic, placing the veiled woman outside the conventional milieu.
‘Unveiled’ serves as a testament to the enduring strength Muslim women possess while often ostracized or while facing the daily stigmatic discourse around identity. This exhibition seeks to help us better inform our judgements and predispositions serving as a means to emancipate ourselves from the unconscious biases we often carry of ‘the other.’
