“Can’t Take It With You” photographs by Omar Mullick
Gallery FCB is pleased to present Canâ€™t Take It With You, a selection of photographs from years documenting American Muslims by New York based photographer Omar Mullick. Pulled from the photographerâ€™s numerous road trips through Muslim communities, the exhibit shows unparalleled access to halfway houses, artists, Balkan immigrants, veiled music producers, a Chicago funeral in the African American Muslim community, Muslim school children at play, Sufi gatherings to American madrasahs and more — all places and events to which Mullick was often the only person allowed to take photographs. .
Omar Mullick was born and raised in London, after which he attended the University of Pennsylvania and earned a degree in Politics, Philosophy and Economics. He spent six years in fashion photography and the film industry, shooting music videos and commercials before turning to documentary photography. His works have shown at the Safe-T gallery in Dumbo, along with recent publication in the National Geographicâ€™s book â€˜One World, One Day.â€™ This is his first solo show.
