Riyadh, Saudi Arabia by Shawn Baldwin

From Shawn Baldwin’s caption: “Young Saudi men shop for mobile phones at a store in Riyadh. For many young Saudi men and women, who have few chances to meet members of the opposite sex, mobile phones and Bluetooth technology allow them the ability to safely flirt in malls, restaurants and traffic signals. The photograph was taken as part of a series I’m working on for the New York Times called ‘Generation Faithful’. The series examines the lives of young people across the Muslim world at a time of religious revival.”
