"My soul is from elsewhere, I am sure of that, and I intend to end up there."

Dear Reader,

I'm happy to share with you that Amaliah, a platform dedicated to amplifying the voices of Muslim women, published an article about my artistic practice, highlighting the Fitra: Amber series.

Read an excerpt from the Amaliah article below: 

"The series also breaks away from some of her previous work that’s focused primarily on ritual and documentation of the Black Muslim aesthetic in the US. These include her photography series ‘As the Veil Turns’ which showcases Black Muslim women who converted to Islam prior to 1975, a pivotal year as it marks the death of Elijah Muhammad, leader of the Nation of Islam. Her 2013 exhibition ‘Ritual and Revolution’ utilises forms found in pilgrimage rituals, sacred geometry and classical astronomy that bind together ideas on social justice, ritual and dialogue of the Iranian revolutionary and sociologist Ali Shariati’s memorable reflections on the symbolism of the Hajj, and Abu Rayhan al-Biruni’s 10th-century astronomical analyses."

I feel blessed to be able to share my work with you and the rest of the world, Alhamdullilah. 
If you have ideas or questions you would like to expand into conversation, don't hesitate to reply to this email. I'm always eager to hear back from you.

With Peace,

Nsenga Knight
