Saskia Aukema

The photographer asked women who wear a niqab in the streets, what they wear when they’re at home. It’s a nicely executed series, with a good concept that actually has content – it goes beyond ‘just a styling thing’. The serious side speaks from the photos, yet they’re also funny. The fact that you can’t see the women’s faces makes the photos stronger. The kid’s feet sneaking into one of the photos is a funny detail.
