<Photo Exhibition> Identities of a Minority: Muslims in America



Date/Time: Fri 18 Nov 2022 – Thu 15 Dec 2022 11:00–16:30
Place: 101 Material Exhibition Room Research Institute for Languages and Cultures of Asia and Africa, TUFS


The book "Identities of a Minority: Muslims in America" will be published this fall by the Tokyo University of Foreign Studies Press. It is a collection of documentary photographs by Rick Rocamora, a Philippine-born photographer living in the United States. The book contains photographs and texts depicting some aspects of the daily lives of Muslims living in the U.S. after the 9/11 tragedy in 2001.

The exhibition will commemorate the book's release by featuring some photographs from the collection. As Rocamora puts it, these photographs convey the "visual voices" of Muslims living in the U.S. today. Through the visualization of their life stories documented in these photographs, the exhibition aims to deliver the idea that human life is not confined to origin or religion. We hope the exhibition gives visitors a chance to learn about the world today and rethink what it means to live.
