This book offers a striking view of the Muslim world through the lens of an amazing photographer who challenges our misconceptions and prejudices. Alexandra Avakian takes us on a photographic journey that questions the popular perceptions of Islam and engages the reader to see the beauty of a world many will never see in person. Her images are exquisite. Her thoughtfulness is poignant. It is a gem worth opening again and again.
