Many of the images are shot in corner shops, and in front of halal butchers, businesses traditionally owned by people of colour, with the intention of celebrating the cultural diversity of London.
The project features women from a range of ethnic backgrounds, in order to represent Muslim women honestly and tackle anti-blackness within the Ummah.
SO HERE FOR THIS
