In response to Aline Smithson’s task in The Photographers Playbook

 

'At 77, a devoted Muslim and a well-known community figure, my granddad has been a life inspiration to me. To photograph what my granddad inspires in me, I want to give you an insight into who he is. Beginning with his surroundings, habits, possessions, from his way of living to the way he chooses to dress. i have always lived with my grandparents and they are very much a part of my upbringing as my parents have been.

I thought a lot about how and what inspires me about him. The one thing I kept coming back to were the teaching he has taught me to understand and in turn live by. These teachings are the  many life lessons he has learned along the way but often also come from the Quran.'
