Street Style Portraits of Muslim-Americans

Earlier this year my friends recommended I check out the 50th Annual Convention of The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA). I made it happen and in addition to attending various talks and panels, I took the opportunity to document the diversity of styles housed within the American-Muslim community.

For those 4 days, street style photography was my window to meeting strangers from all walks of life. I wandered until someone arrested my attention. Reacting quickly, I had to keep myself in check so as not to scare my subjects with my over-enthusiasm in finding them.

Below you will find a wide array of Muslim characters working together to reflect the rich diversity housed within the community. You can find more photos on my Instagram feed.
