In his timely series, You Get Me?, photographer Mahtab Hussain addresses the “contested political terrain of race and representation, respect and cultural difference” in the UK. His subjects identify as Muslim and expressed how they often felt embarrassed and ridiculed by the incessant negative media reporting on UK Muslim young men.
A photobook of You Get Me? will be published by MACK in June to coincide with the exhibition at Autograph ABP, which will run from 5 May until 1 July 2017. To find out more, visit autograph-abp.co.uk.
