INTERNATIONAL VEIL SERIES
The International Veil series highlights young muslim women in cosmopolitan cities, where the hijab is a choice, documenting and celebrating the expression of their individual identities through their vibrant hijab styles.
The project is neither a critic nor an advocate of the veil itself but rather exists to recognise and celebrate its participants as strong, vital individuals who manage to shine, despite the struggles of youth, womanhood and prejudice they may receive as a result of the visibility of their faith.
Through the documentation of these modern muslimahs and their self-styled hijabs, ranging from subtle to wild in their expression, London Veil and its sister series across the world both illustrates and is inspired by the influence of our perceived restrictions, limitations and challenges.
Those forces encourage originality, adaptation and in turn transform cultural expression into objects of beauty.
