Clement Cooper
Sisters
A celebration of british female muslim identity
HC 24 x 24 cm, im Schuber.
Cornerhouse 2005

Mit seinen dreißig Portraits legt Cooper eine feine Sammlung vor. Islamische Frauen zwischen Schule und Arbeit, in stillen, unaufdringlichen Bildern, die Raum lassen für das, was in den zahllosen Debatten noch nicht gesagt wurde.

"Four years in the making, Sisters reveals the personal thoughts and feelings of young hijab wearing muslim women living in the northwest of England. Combining Cooper's astonishing use of natural light and striking compositional techniques, this superbly produced portfolio presents a wonderful insight into a world largely ignored or misrepresented. This makes it a bold and dynamic statement of startling beauty and profound dignity." Cornerhouse-
