SAMIRA SAIDI

prayers to myself

 

Prayers To Myself is a visual story depicting a gentle and different angle towards religion, especially Islam. Redirecting the focus towards the simple understanding of religion as a connective experience between body and nature. Despite all the negative and charged conversations against Islam

and its impacts on the worlds. should this story function as an enabler and reminder of different discussions and understandings. Shifting stigma and prejudice towards Muslims in our society and open up a world with

different realities, that allows Muslims to exists as individuals with their own thoughts and ideas rather than an unity supporting extreme measures that we are exposed to on the news.
