Queens Museum of Art

Eight images from my project, God & Globalization, are currently on display until June 29 as part of the "This Case of Conscience" exhibit at the Queens (NY) Museum of Art. Relfecting on the 350th anniversary of The Flushing Remonstrance, the exhibit examines, via documentary photography and various installation pieces, the current state of religious diversity in Flushing. The Remonstrance was the first act of citizens insisting on religious freedom for their neighbors during colonial Dutch rule of then New Amsterdam and is widely considered a first spark that laid the philosophical groundwork for the Freedom of Religion doctrine in the Bill of Rights. This is work that I produced in part with funding from the Getty Images Grant for Editorial Photography. I am continuing to work on the project when I can.

The opening reception for the show is May 18 3-6pm.
