"A transformation of thought. First the western generalization held keeps some hesitant but curious. However, the smiling faces spark the realization that these are all individuals. Next you see each women in a new light. The vibrancy of their souls radiate. The vibrant colors and scenery change display the veil being removed from your eyes. They are each individuals but still a community." - Shukri Janagale
Our models are of Somali and Malian descent. Each brought their own hijabs and outfits for styling. These were fellow students I met through the African Student Association and are all creatives. Making jewelry, clothing, writing and more. This project was to showcase the student populations and cultures that are here in Iowa unbeknownst to many.
