Stunning Portraits from the Islamic World

Share:  

Anyone who is lucky enough to have travelled anywhere in the Islamic world will know it is a trove of diversity, colour and remarkable photographic opportunities. As in most travel spots, chief among the photographic opportunities are the people. We think this collection shows a good spread of what can be achieved with portraits when travelling in many places of the Islamic world and might even have you reaching for your passport.
