Applications to be a part of Faces of Islam are now CLOSED. Thank you so much for your support!
What is Faces Of Islam?
Faces of Islam is about sharing stories from a diverse group of everyday Muslim people with the community and the world. We will work to demystify Muslim people by breaking down false stereotypes, and sharing common experiences, to bring people together.
Photographic Portraits along with poignant quotes taken from interviews will be displayed publicly, as well as video taken during the shoot.
Faces of Islam is focused only on the stories of Muslim people, we are careful not to make comment on, or on behalf of, Islam.
By becoming one of our Faces Of Islam and by sharing your story, you will help bring our communities together.
Who is behind Faces Of Islam?
Faces of Islam is driven and captured by photographer Matt Palmer AAIPP. He has won Queensland Documentary Photographer of the Year in 2014 and 2015, and is passionate about sharing people’s stories.
In the past he won Australian Sports Photographer of the Year documenting Muay Thai fighters, and also exhibited Images Of Note: 7 Years of Live Music Photography to a capacity crowd.
He is ably supported by Aleem Ali, Naseema Mustapha, Mohamed Bah and Dave Tattersall who make up the Faces Of Islam team.
If you would like to be a backup in case someone is unable to make their shoot, and you are available in Brisbane at short notice between April 2nd and 4th, you are still welcome to apply. However we cannot guarantee your involvement.
These questions will serve to select a diverse group of people to represent the project. Thanks for your support!
