* Light fare will be provided, but feel free to bring appetizers, beer or wine to share as this is a community focused event.
Wesaam Al-Badry was born in Nasiriyah, Iraq, and lived at a refugee camp where he traded some marbles for a camera and has been shooting ever since. Al-Badry has been a contract photographer for CNN and Al-Jazeera America. His work focuses on The Other, or the notion that an individual or group becomes mentally classified in somebody’s mind as “not one of us.” He is currently pursuing his BFA in Photography at the San Francisco Art Institute. His recent work covers the rise of Islamophobic merchandising in America.
