Featured Instgrammers is a new series where we’ll feature some really cool Instagram accounts from the region and beyond. We are starting off with Places You’ll Pray, a photo project that features unconventional places where Muslims pray.
It was started by a young Muslim America Woman Sana Ullah who completed her Master of Arts degree in New Media Photojournalism earlier this year. Sana Ullah got the idea when her family was at a mall during prayer time and had to pray in the dressing room.
The Instagram account has more than 20,000 followers and has shared more than 500 pictures already. What started with pictures taken by Sana Ullah herself now accepts submissions from all around the world.
It has been featured in different leading international online publications including HuffPost, BuzzFeed, Fusion & Quartz.
Place You’ll Pray also has a Facebook Page and a dedicated website where users can submit their pictures to be shared on Instagram of the project.
