London Calling

With my street photography series "London Calling" I want to show that in open-minded London being Muslim is not such an extraordinary thing, and not just since Sadiq Khan, a Muslim, was elected mayor of this melting pot. Islam and Muslim people are an integral part of London society. The question whether this religion should be visible in the public space and how much space it should be allowed to occupy does not arise there in the way that it does in Germany, even in Berlin. You stumble across Islam all over the city in various ways - you find mosques, people, street art and even advertising.
