Rayhannah Ali: The Disturbance & UNUNDERSTOOD

“I am using family photographs to portray the British Muslims/ Asian families that are affected by media headlines and their misconception of the innocent bystanders that get caught up in political issues.”

A personal view on life as a British Muslim of Bengali descent from artist Rayhanna Ali. Rayhanna’s mature commentary belies her young age. Her graphically beautiful series made it hard for me to choose.
