The photo story, ‘By Your Muslim Sister’ by queer trans Muslim artist Adam Setton, began as an exploration of oneself; of one’s heritage and culture, of gender fluidity, of the spectrum of sexuality, and evolved into an exploration of the lives of those closest to the artist. The artist aimed to capture their loved ones in their most glorious of lights, as though to place them on a pedestal. This story unfolds as a narrative that, to some, may seem untold, unprinted and unpublished. The photos represented here engage in a dialogue with the artist’s first written memoir that will be released soon, Unprinted / Unpublished.
