Chrysalis

This series is a part of the project ‘i-Islam’ which presents a self-documentation of my discovery of Islam. ‘Chrysalis’ focuses on the floating movement of the prayer dress. I grow into the delicate fabric of the prayer garment and its ritual symbolism. Prayer is an act unlike any other, and so should its trappings be. It is my hope that the simple beauty of the prayer garment becomes the residual image of Islam in the viewer’s mind. Over a succession of weeks the self-documentation process created a space where photography became a ritual and the ritual an art. What follows is a dialogue between body and soul.
