An aerial view of the ancient city of Mecca, which now has many high-rise office blocks and hotels, but the Sacred Mosque, Al-Masjid, al-Haram, dominates the skyline, and is the focal point of all the city’s roads. Kenya's renowned photojournalist Mohamed Amin portrays these crowning moments in the life of men, rich and poor, from places as far apart as Malaysia and Mali, Nigeria and Japan, Indonesia and Iraq.
He was among the first to be given permission to photograph sections of the Sacred Mosque in Mecca and the Prophet’s Mosque in Medina.
