Muslim Teens Aren’t a Spectacle for Your Creepy Photo Series

    This woman has mental health issues. Her photographs are voyeuristic and she should be put in jail for photographing minors in this manner. She claims that those she photographs are Muslim, however, there is nothing that confirms this other than her word. I think that they are random teenagers at a park. Unfortunately, teens will be teens. It doesn’t matter what race or religion. I googled her website and saw some of the other photographs she has done. She is an awful photographer and she seems to think that her route to fame is by associating her “art” she creates with Islam. Anything that shows Islam in a negative light brings fame.

      Thank God we live in a country where people cannot be imprisoned for taking pictures in public, for her sake. Thank God we live in a country where people cannot be imprisoned for horrible ideas, for your sake.

    Are we forgetting the part where we should not be encouraging the existence of hook-up spots to begin with? Especially for Muslims? What this women is doing is obviously wrong and malicious and the author is correct in stating that adolescence is a confusing period of exploration and adventure, but that doesn’t mean sexual exploration and adventure, and definitely not of this kind. As a muslim based site we should take care, especially as many young viewers read these articles not to lend a voice of acceptance or approval to such activities and instead provide more constructive alternatives for working through teenage angst that is a normal aspect of life.
