Initially, I wanted to present an unfamiliar matriarchal society, which I began to recognize through my wife. I was intrigued by how it could have remained undocumented, and why the mainstream media never picked up on it. The answer is simple: the most populous matriarchy in the world is Muslim!

As a photographer, it was motivating enough to immerse myself in this subject, and now already being a part of it. I photograph the life of my wife and myself as a kind of diary, while I deal with my own changes, through questions such as, what it means to be a Muslim, how my life has changed since being a husband, and how we are preparing for having children, and so on.
