Muslims in Britain | Photojournalist: Justin Jin

Muslims in Britain | Photojournalist: Justin Jin | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

"From humble beginnings fifty years ago, when men from Pakistan and India arrived to take up factory jobs in England, the Muslim community has grown to become a significant force in the British society.

Today, generations of Muslims live happily as British citizens, study and working side-by-side with the whites. Yet harmony is being eroded by terrorism and a growing siege mentality. In the impoverished north, where crumbled textile factories stand as stark reminders of better days, Muslims confine themselves to bleak, isolated quarters." - Justin Jin

Brick Lane Street | Photographer: Serge Bouvet | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

Brick Lane is a street in East London, England, in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. It runs from Swanfield Street in the northern part of Bethnal Green, crosses Bethnal Green Road, passes through Spitalfields and is linked to Whitechapel High Street to the south by the short stretch of Osborn Street. Today, it is the heart of the city's Bangladeshi-Sylheti community and is known to some as Banglatown. It is famous for its many curry houses and the graffiti's artists. The French photographer Serge Bouvet stayed 3 hours in this street to shoot the lovely pedestrians.
