UNVEILED

PHOTOSHOP, ILLUSTRATOR, INDESIGN

'Unveiled' explores the possible notion of the face veil serving as a symbol of female liberation. I felt providing insight into peoples personal reasons for choosing to wear hijab or niqaab in Western society, would be a compelling way to re-contextualise the veil and dispel negative stereotypes perpetuated by the media today.
