Washington Post - Artist Todd Drake at Duke University

"Artist Todd Drake [is] trying to build interfaith bridges by asking Muslims to turn the lens on themselves. Drake’s traveling exhibit, “Muslim Self Portraits,” started after he decided he needed to learn more about his Muslim neighbors. 'I just started cold-calling mosques,' Drake said during an exhibition of his work at Duke University’s Sanford School of Public Policy. 'I had an intuitive feeling that they would be interested in this project. I asked them to represent themselves, not to let me define them.'"
