I am Gay and Muslim Photo Document

Parallel to the film documentary I am Gay and Muslim, i made a photo series of the men who are in the film or contributed to it.

With this photo document we wanted to create an opportunity where they can show themselves, in addition to the many dilemmas young, gay Muslims are struggling with in their quest for identity and acceptance by society.

The series is commissioned by the producer of the film, Dutch foundation Stichting art.1.

Some pictures who made it through the final selection and are in exhibition -for now- at screenings of the film:
