My friend Emmad and i did a series of photos for my burqalesque routine’s promos. This is one of the shots. The whole set is about reclaiming the muslim female sexual identity. So often are muslim women shown in a non sexual, oppressed manner when portrayed in a burqa. Sexual liberation doesnt have to mean putting your sexuality on obvious display, sometimes just little gestures make something erotic.
This is one in fifty pictures we have taken together. I am hoping to get a grant and run a gallery exhibition about the new muslim identity/the female muslim identity
(emphasis ours) Absolutely stunning.
It’s not up to any one culture to dictate what sexuality/sexual liberation looks like for everyone.
