Photo booth series #12: are you what you wear?

May 7th, 2013 by

photo booth#12

This photograph was taken in our exhibition Faith, fashion, fusion: Muslim women’s style in Australia where faith, fashion and Muslim identity are explored through the work of a group of Australian Muslim designers and selected stories from women in the Muslim community. One of the experiences that we have made in the gallery space is a photo booth where we are inviting our visitors to tell a story about themselves. We have prompted the conversation by asking the question

Are you what you wear? Your style only tells a small part of your story. In a few words tell us something about yourself that we wouldn’t know from your appearance.

The photo above was submitted by the woman featured in the photo. We will be sharing these photos with you in the gallery, online and a selection will be highlighted here on Photo of the Day.
