Muslim Sisterhood: The Photography Project Taking Social Media by Storm

by in Identity on 19th January, 2018

Muslim Sisterhood is a photography project that capture Muslim women in London. The project was founded by photographer Lamisa Khan, and artists Zeinab Saleh and Sara Gumali to capture the beauty of Muslim women who aren’t ‘stereotype breakers’.

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.

The movement has gained much attention on social media. We can’t wait to see whats next.
