Our favorite, funny balloon-maker and t-shirt seller is back, and better than ever. Check out the newly-relaunched HijabMan.com for all sorts of good stuff, including his gorgeous photos, of which he explains:
Iâ€™m not a photographer nor am I a journalist trained to seek out interesting subjects and present them neatly labeled and interpreted. My only explanations are that 1. Iâ€™ve been living my life in freeze frames since the age of 12, and 2. I love beautiful things. I am just a Muslim who travels, studies, and sells funky t-shirts along the way. When the opportunities presented themselves, I captured the faces that touched me. I love to witness the reflection of the Divine in all that I experience; I love to make you a witness by posting these photos.
I know HijabMan personally, so when he says he’s aiming to spread “a message of consciousness, of justice, of living a life free of people and institutions that exploit others,” you can be sure he is indeed working on those goals. Also, you should buy his t-shirts.
Meanwhile, I’m highly amused that, over at HijabMan.com, this little ol’ weblog of mine is linked right smack in between Khaled Abou El Fadl and Tariq Ramadan‘s respective websites. Wow, now I really gotta get all smart and intellectual.
