Artist's statement

A portrait of Ms Ibrahim Baradi, a Muslim ice cream seller in Melbourne. The photograph uses ice cream as an analogy to illustrate the essential alikeness of our diverse society, regardless of guise. Ibrahim's ice cream is available in a variety of toppings, yet is alike at the core. Our society, too, comes in a wide assortment of toppings, yet we all share a common humanity.
