Of her series Abstract–a reflection on the hajj (the holy Islamic pilgrimage to Makkah)–Nasreen explains: "Pilgrimage is always a personal experience which involves intimate feelings of change. Clarity and overcoming are, in my personal experience, the most important part of any pilgrimage. The black dots covering my face represent impurity, a lack of clarity, and distress. As the pilgrimage progresses, these dots are quarterly removed, leaving the face to emerge from behind the original opaque image. The images serve as a representation of the intangible effects of pilgrimage and the physical movement through space alongside the spiritual movement of the self."
