The subject matter of this project is something that I am very passionate about and I chose to do because of my own experiences and cultural background. My upbringing consisted of two very different cultural influences, my mother being Iranian and my father English, which has influenced my passion and understanding in the direction of my work. This project deals with the perceptions and representations of the veil, the duality of west and east and how both overlap in today's society. The neutral space surrounding the sitter leaves the viewer without connotations, to allow the viewer to form their own perceptions. I hope to raise questions about the viewer's own perception of the veil with this work.
