This photograph comes from a position of protest – as a Muslim woman I challenge the male gaze by choosing to express modesty and express my body autonomy by deciding what people get to see of my form.

This photo is aiming to challenge the current public discourse on hijab and niqab, by strategically positioning a folded scarf across my face highlighting different elements of my face, yet still remaining identifiable I hope to point out the ridiculousness of the opinion that face veil renders a woman unidentifiable.

The use of Quran on a tablet, reflects the timelessness of the teachings of Islam, indeed they are for all times.
