An Indian, A Nun, And A Hijabi

Thursday, 10 March 2011

In the name of God, Compassionate, Merciful بسم الله الرحمن الرحيمِ | Peace be with you السلام عليكم

© Zaufishan 2011. "An Indian, A Nun, And A Hijabi." A few previews.


Design work commissioned by a UK broadcasting organisation that's looking at the various head coverings in tradition. We find a multitude of cultural coverings that are stipulated as part of custom law or celebratory and as signs of authority, these are found in almost every country and throughout history.



Other head coverings show ranks, they are part of a uniform. Entering into a certain roles can have a condition, that you are 'expected to wear this'.

These are my drafts; the final publication is out around May in time for a conference so until then, your feedback is appreciated.

I think this is such an interesting way to discuss a very important issues. Your pictures are great, masha'Allah. Its amazing how pictures are able to make such important statements without even using words. All the best with all that you're doing.

@Aneebaba & Zarina, mashaAllah. Visual methods are the most effective; I still feel they need more depth. Jazakallah khair for commentos. Z.
