Ans Westra, The Crescent Moon / 5 September - 4 October 2009

In the making of 'The Crescent Moon' renowned photographer Ans Westra and writer Adrienne Jansen travelled through the country, catching up with people in their everyday lives. 

They met a very diverse group, ethnically, culturally, and theologically. There are lawyers and farmers, computer trainers and butchers, fourth generation New Zealanders and new migrants.

They talk with disarming honesty and humour about the media, about identity, about their faith - but mostly they just talk about their lives as Muslims in New Zealand.

This exhibition is an Asia N Z Foundation Project, developed by Pataka and accompanied by a substantial publication.
