Hasna Muhammad claims her voice as an artist with Breathe In the Sky: Poems Prayers & Photographs. The poetry delves into family, social justice, and the human condition. The prayers echo a spiritual journey toward self-fullness. The images portray the patience of nature, a slice of the street, and the love of family. Hasna pushes herself through self-inflicted barriers and finds herself whole and fulfilled on the other side. Breathe In the Sky is a declaration that it is never too late to transform doubts and vulnerabilities into bravery and confidence.
“Breathe In the Sky is me spreading my extremities into the high blue infinite space of the universe to breathe-in the sky. To be in the sky—lingering in that split second when both feet are off the ground in order to take the next step forward or climb a mountain or even fly.” —HM
