His most recent work attempts to show the diversity of hijabs and its wearers in the throes of cultural, social, and political ideologies in Indonesia's Muslim society following the end of the new Order era. The "veil" could be interpreted as an antinomy (if not a paradox) of arguments and aspects beyond the essence of Islam which contradict yet still remain in coexistence with each other.
