Overview

Mrs. Syed captures moments in the day-to-day lives of these Muslim women, moments that the average American can relate to once they "embrace" the fact that she covers her hair. The accompanying photo captions and personal quotes flesh out the dimensions of these women's lives. In the faces of a dancer, a surfer-girl, a biker, a tri-athlete and even a boxer you hear their voices, and touch their thoughts, dreams, struggles and fears. With each page, a stereotypes is shattered and the misunderstandings that surround the female followers of a faith of 1.3 billion diminish. iCOVER has garnered significant publicity both domestically and internationally.

About the Author

A photojournalist and portrait photographer, Sadaf obtained her degree in communications and photo-journalism from California State University, Fullerton. Like each of us, she has been on her own journey of self-discovery. Along the way, she found another perspective on the Muslim-American women who cover. Taking the same medium that's being used to misrepresent them, she focused her camera lens on women who graciously sacrificed their privacy in order to show their fellow Americans the commonalities we all share. Sadaf's work has been featured internationally as well as in exhibitions across the United States of America.
