This is a selection of photographs by Alfredo Cáliz that has been curated by more than thirty Muslim associations, who have highlighted the fifteen photographs that they consider best reflect the diverse and inclusive image of Muslim communities between two collections ceded to the Al Fanar Foundation for Arab Knowledge by the photographer.
The purpose of the exhibition is to create an awareness and information tool about a reality as diverse, complex and stereotypical as Islam is.
By way of traits and prints, these fifteen strokes want to awaken horizons and senses, pick up nuances, people and places, and get closer to the wealth and plurality of Muslims as part of our society.
