Pakistani-American photojournalist Sadaf Syed was recently recognised by President Barack Obama and officials at the White House for her groundbreaking photo documentary, iCover: A Day in the Life of a Muslim-American COVERed Girl. Capturing the diversity in thought, style, and livelihoods of American Muslims around the nation, Syed’s photographic montage stands to illuminate Muslim women, removing the layers of misconceptions about them through visuals and words.
After obtaining public nominations of participants for her photos, Syed set out to travel across the United States with her two young children and their double strollers, trekking state to state, going through airport scanners, and “random checking,” to photograph and capture the stories of women who wear the hijab across the country.
