Can’t Take It With You – Photographs of Muslims In America

A picture is worth a thousand words!

Looks interesting, insh’Allah I’ll try to be here.

Pulled from the photographer’s numerous road trips through Muslim communities, the exhibit shows unparalleled access to halfway houses, artists, Balkan immigrants, veiled music producers, a Chicago funeral in the African American Muslim community, Muslim school children at play, Sufi gatherings to American madrasahs — all places and events to which Mullick was often the only person allowed to take photographs. Anchored in the photographic traditions of Walker Evans, Robert Frank and Gordon Parks, Mullick’s work stitches together an intimate, visual tapestry of the American Muslim experience from within and, in the process, expands on the visual record of who we understand to be Americans.
