Community Partnership Exhibition Program

A black, title slide with the phrase “The Faces Of” in lime green, block font. Below that reads “ISLAM” also in block letters. Within each letter is a color photograph portrait of people of different genders. They are dressed in western wear and traditional clothings. Some of them are also holding a Quran.

Created by LaGuardia Community College photography students, the exhibit features over 30 photographs of LaGuardia students, staff and family members, as well as New York City politicians and community leaders who practice the Islamic faith.


The Faces of Islam” exhibition presents to you the perspective of a representative group of diverse community college students,” said Scott Sternbach, director of the photography department at LaGuardia. “These teachers, artists, airline pilots, community activists, attorneys and myriad of others joined with our students and alums to share the bond of creative photography and in the process met as human beings working together for a common cause; to be seen as individuals and not as stereotypes.”
