Blue Burqa in a Sunburnt Country

posted in: Publications | 0

For Westerners, the burqa is a garment pregnant with symbolism. This series, shot during a 10,000 kilometre journey stretching from New South Wales to Western Australia, seeks to take the symbolism beyond the typical connotations of sexism and repression, and into a more metaphorical landscape that raises questions of migration, assimilation and belonging. During its voyage, the burqa reveals an unexpectedly luminous, ethereal beauty.
