Al Aqsa: Faith Transforming a Philadelphia Neighborhood

Images in my pbase galleries are Copyright 2005-2007. All rights reserved.

This gallery is part of a larger ethnographic study of all 83 congregations on Germantown Avenue in Philadelphia that I am working on with Dr Katie Day from the Lutheran Theological Seminary in Philadelphia. (See http://www.pbase.com/eddconboy/faith_on_the_avenue )
These photos document in detail the work done by a group of artists and muralists who, during the summer and early fall of 2004, designed a new facade for the Al Aqsa Islamic Society in the South Kensington section of Philadelphia. Included here also are photos of members of the Al Aqsa community - most notably students from the primary school and high school that comprise Al-Aqsa Academy. (see http://www.pbase.com/eddconboy/al_aqsa_islamic_academy )
The photos were taken in one or two week intervals between July and November 2004. Unfortunately, because of the way the project was structured they are not in chronological order.
