Exhibition: “In the heart of Indian Sufism" My Destination Rio de JaneiroFundição Progresso is the site for the latest exhibition of photographer, Ousmane Lambat, titled: “A Unidade - no coração do sufismo” translated in English as “A Unit – in the heart of Indian Sufism”.
From 19 Oct 2012 To 15 Nov 2012The photo exhibition depicts the world of Sufism, identified as Islam's mystical power. It is a total experience of the senses afforded by the author using photography as well as some unique video. Sufism in India had an instrumental role in spreading Islam in India.
The pilgrimage of the photographer Ousmane Lambat began ten years ago, when he felt a need to better understand the world. Departing La Reunion, a small French island in the Indian Ocean, Ousmane travels through Europe, Asia and Australia. He supports himself by performing small photography projects based in London. On one of his assignments that takes him on a trip through India, the land of his ancestors, he discovers Sufism, Islam's mystical power.
The photographer, through this exciting work, invites us to relive this great adventure with him. Through the valleys of Kashmir and deserted landscapes of Rajasthan, he guides us along the path of the great masters who have brought Sufism to the Indian world. At the end of the journey, we discover Islam in its spiritual dimension, full of “peace, fraternity and humanism”. The exhibition contrasts the stereotyped image of the religion, which too often is perceived as extreme, fanatical and often misunderstood.
