Winner of the Honorable Mention of the 12th edition of the Julia Margaret Cameron Award in the Professional Section, category "Women Seen By Women".


Obliged to hide due to discriminatory laws against them, invisible to the Islamic world that believes feminine Sufism illegitimate, the women inside the mystical Islam live leading a mysterious revolution without weapons, an all-female revolution. They are Sufi, dervishes, women who try to change their spiritual life by focusing on the heart, to freely follow Islamic philosophy inspired by love. Theirs, is an ascetic path that they face dancing step by step, whirling in spirals that overwhelm the senses until the overcoming of the natural state that opens to contemplation. A path that is both exercise and devotion. They are enlightened by their love for Allah, gathering together to dance an ecstatic prayer, to trace with their body those circular lines that push the soul towards the commingling with the whole universe. Here there are no limits, restrictions, differences; they achieve a kind of trance, the only state that will allow them to feel as close as possible to their loved one.
Then Allah asked Moses:
"Why not allow each man to praise me his own way? "
So one wonders why we can not allow every woman to praise her way? The law that they love, respect and proclaim through their precise and controlled movements, it is the same that condemns these women for the execution of these practices, whose exercise is reserved for men.
Against the law, against morality, against society; in a word, women.
Allah Al-Batin, God the hidden, God the invisible.
