"In Western Europe, there is perhaps no more controversial garment than the niqab: the face veil that leaves only the eyes visible. Who are the women who wear something that is the subject of so much discussion? What do they find important, beautiful and fun?
In her photo volume called 'Veiled. Too busy being awesome' Saskia AUKEMA reveals a world that has always remained hidden from most of us. Interview fragments give depth to the photos, for which the Dutch photographer received the Zilveren Camera in the portrait category in 2016." (free translation of publisher's text, © Lecturis, 2017)
