The Photographer that Wowed the Art World, on Display Now
The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, is celebrating a major acquisition of 75 photographs spanning the career of Fazal Sheikh, an award-winning photographer and portraitist of uncommon sensitivity. The special exhibition "Homelands and Histories: Photographs by Fazal Sheikh" displays the incredible work of Sheikh’s 25 years spent travelling the world, capturing images of the displaced and marginalized in Africa, South Asia, and the Middle East.
In Sheikh’s own words, his aim is to “contribute to a wider understanding of these groups, to respect them as individuals, and to counter the ignorance and prejudice that often attaches to them,” a goal achieved through his simple, direct portraits. See his powerful work on display now at the Museum of Fine Arts.
