There is perhaps no more controversial garment of clothing in Western Europe than the niqab: the face veil that leaves only the eyes visible. Who are the women who choose to wear something that generates so much discussion? What do they find important, beautiful and funny? In Veiled, photographer Saskia Aukema reveals a world that has always been hidden to most of us.

Interview fragments provide depth to the photos, which won a Zilveren Camera in the portraits category in 2016. Professor Annelies Moors (UvA) wrote the epilogue.
