Sufi Master Shaykha Fariha al Jerrahi
I like to shoot people candidly in their favorite environments or with their favorite people. This is when they are most comfortable. This portrait is of Shaykha Fariha al Jerrahi, a rare female Sufi master, was done during a Ramadan celebration and shows her surrounded by Whirling Dervishes. It was particularly challenging because none of the other participants wished to be shown. the images has been used is college classes and to advertise classes at East/West books in NYC. See more.
