prayers to myself | 2019 Ghana

Prayers To Myself is a visual story depicting a gentle and different angle towards religion, especially Islam. Redirecting the focus towards the simple understanding of religion as a connective experience between body and nature. Despite all the negative and charged conversations against Islam and its impacts on the world is this story functioning as an enabler and reminder of different discussions and understandings. Shifting stigma and prejudice towards Muslims in our society and opening up a world with different realities, that allow Muslims to exist as individuals with their own thoughts and ideas rather than a unity supporting extreme measures that we are exposed to on the news.
