Inside The Mosque

Inverness, Scotland

After the terrorist attacks in Paris in 2015 the backlash against ordinary Muslims angered me and I decided I could do nothing or try to do something. After some contemplation I decided to contact the local mosque and try to gain access and tell some stories of the everyday lives of the people attending. After careful vetting I was granted permission and began photographing and recording some of the events that took place there, and the many friends I made amongst the congregation. The mosque committe found the images I made and stories I wrote to be very valuable in publicising their presence and their charitable work.
