A Photographic Journey Through The Islamic World
A Photographic Journey Through the Islamic world opened at Asia House in London on April 11. The exhibition, curated by Tarik Alireza and Richard Wilding,  presents 500 images capturing the diversity of the Islamic world past and present - drawing upon a vast collection of historic images collected over the past 40 years.  These images capture change and continuity, and highlight the importance of preserving the heritage of a region that has witnessed a great deal of turmoil in the last decade. Scenes of historic markets and trades, traditional costumes that have all but disappeared, cafe-owners, rug-weavers, and lemonade-sellers are juxtaposed with street views lined with overhanging balconies in Jeddah and Damascus, lost windmills in Yemen, sleepy river crossings and Chinese mosques. 

In contrast is a wide selection of images from the contemporary Islamic world taken by amateur Instagram photographers - capturing the vibrancy and vitality of the region today - magic shots of ordinary people living everyday lives.

The selection on display at Asia House is the result of over a year's worth of sorting and sifting to strike a balance between the quotidian and the extraordinary. 

The exhibition, which runs until May 3rd, is open Mondays to Saturdays with the exception of the Easter weekend. More details can be found here
