Generations aims to complicate the generally simplistic depiction of Muslim communities by asserting our diverse narratives —past and present — through multigenerational portraits and shared stories, particularly in the context of Canada’s collective consciousness. My goal for this work is to make space for women’s stories, which are so often sidelined in both marginal and mainstream narratives. These photographs of family units, in which a matriarchal figure is usually portrayed as a carrier of wisdom and keeper of cultural and family narratives, are intended to draw attention to both generational similarities and differences.
