This non-Muslim photographer started to travel in 2000 across the vast Islamic World to cover the lifestyles of the Muslim communities.

“Each one of these trips introduced me to a more nuanced view of Islam—from the various interpretations of the religion to the diversity of the people who practiced Islam,” she expressed.

This disparity pushed Addario to work with the American Muslim communities in an effort to tell their stories in a broader way. She decided with National Geographic to title the story of her featured photographs as ‘How Muslims, Often Misunderstood, Are Thriving in America’...
