انا كثر, 'I Am More' explores the relationship between modesty and Muslim women, illustrating the intrinsic power of the act of covering. The photo series identifies themes around Middle Eastern dressing traditions linked to environments and social spaces, which I was surrounded by during my childhood in Dubai. The images play with the idea of ‘modest fashion’, which has now become popularised within the fashion industry and the sense of elegance and respect it brings. Muslim women are the central focus of the photographs indicating their self-worth and empowerment, which would have previously been dismissed in earlier years by Western notions of contemporary dress and free expression. In this fashion documentary series the hidden is celebrated.
