Inspired by a chapter on the muslim veil in anthropoligist Andrew Beatty's excellent book " A Shadow Falls in the Heart of java " I have started a portrait series on young Indonesian women wearing the veil. I'm in the early stages of this personal project. I have shot tests using film on my 4x5" and Hasselblad. I also shot some with my Canon 5DMKII. Having reveiewed all I'm most taken by the images shot on the hasselblad. The aim is to shoot more over the coming months from different parts of Indonesia, with a view to exhibiting - and perhaps a book.
