I want this photo series to encourage Muslims, especially among the younger generation, to contemplate, change and adapt to German societ.y I have captured real-life moments to stay an authentic observer. I don’t want to give the impression of a utopian vision. I chose this topic because I think of myself as a pious, yet enlightened and integrated Muslim who considers Germany as his home. I also want to address Germans with my series, so that they let go of prejudices. Many texts have been written on the subject, but people are too lazy to read them. Photos, on the other hand, immediately force the viewer to engage and interpret. A picture says more than a thousand words. And the 1,000 words within an image are stronger and more effective than 1,000 words in a text.
