See My Dunya I

About the piece

The image of a Somali pot that is used in a family household in ManchesterSee My Dunya aims to redress this. Captured guerrilla style by London photographer Sharmaarke Ali Adan, the See My Dunya imagery juxtaposes the everyday and mundane – a man standing on his doorstep, young boys playing football after attending mosque, a shopkeeper tending to her goods – with hyper-stylised fashion-referencing portraits of the community’s young creatives. In doing so, it questions the viewer’s perception of Somalis, and invites Somalis to see how the next generation are drawing from their heritage.
