15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Building New Life

Picture was taken on the roof of Oslo Opera house. Group of your Muslim woman were walking around and stopped at this point for a photo shoot. That particular photo was breaking moment, right after that you could feel liberation in the air, funny faces were made, hands thrown in the air, make up put extensively, even hijabs set loose. Whole roof was filled with laughter and freedom. Construction in the background seemed to set a tone of new beginnings for everyone involved.
