Portraits of the kind Muslim men of Delhi: an interview with French photographer Serge Bouvet by Bianca Olivia Nita

Portraits of the kind Muslim men of Delhi: an interview with French photographer Serge Bouvet by Bianca Olivia Nita | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it
Photo report's insight:

"Serge Bouvet first went to India in 2012 with the plan to make a photo project about the hijras – a term used in Southeast Asia to define transgender people. But while documenting this story he discovered something else: the openness and beauty of the Muslim community living in the Turkman Gate old city in Delhi. Bouvet decided to photograph the Muslim men he met. And I talked to him about this project, about how he got the idea and about the way he approaches the people he photographs."- Bianca Olivia Nita

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

SENS INTERDITS | Photographer: Wassim Ghozlani

SENS INTERDITS | Photographer: Wassim Ghozlani | PHOTOGRAPHERS | Scoop.it

The work of Wassim Ghozlani takes the form of round images 40cm in diameter, the size of a Do Not Enter sign, which he imitates in his photographs by dressing women in red burqas and barring their eyes with a white headband, evoking their loss of sight and limited access to knowledge. This virulent series is matched by the work of eight women artists questioning their status, Patricia Triki and Héla Ammar at the White Box, as well as Amel Ben Attia, Nicène Kossentini and Mouna Jemal Siala at the Fiaf gallery.
