Photographer Edward Grazda to Speak at JSC
October 14, 2009
Since the World Trade Center attack in 1993, Edward Grazda has photographed many of the mosques in New York City. These photos defy the media stereotypes of Muslims in America and show images of religious structures which reflect and create identities for Muslims within the dense and diverse urban fabric of New York City.
Born in Queens, NY, Grazda studied photography at the Rhode Island School of Design. Since the 1970s his work has taken him to Latin America, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. His photographs have appeared in many publications and art in several museum collections, and he is the author of three books of photography.
Grazda will give a slide presentation and talk for the JSC community and members of the public on Wednesday, October 14, 2009 at 4:30 p.m. in the Stearns Performance Space in the Stearns Student Center on the JSC campus.
This even is free and all are welcome.
