Photography by Mustafa Hussain
171 Cedar Arts Center’s RESILIENCE | A BUFFALO STORY Exhibition opens Thursday, January 12.
171 Cedar Arts Center is excited to present RESILIENCE | A BUFFALO STORY, photography by Mustafa Hussain. The exhibit will be held at 171’s Houghton Gallery at 155 Cedar Street. The opening reception will be held on Thursday, January 12 from 5:00 – 7:00 PM. Guests will enjoy light hors d’oeuvres and beverages.
This exhibition is a collection of portraits and documentary work over the past two years focused on the beautiful resilience within the Black community of Buffalo, New York.
Mustafa Hussain is a South Asian Muslim-American photojournalist and portrait photographer from Western New York. Now based in Chicago, he works independently often contributing to The New York Times, Chicago Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, and more. His documentary work focuses on narratives within underrepresented communities, and uses portraiture as a way to facilitate discussions about systemically marginalized identity and culture in America today. “RESILIENCE | A BUFFALO STORY” is a collection of portraits and reportage work over the past two years focused on the beautiful resilience within the Black community of Buffalo, N.Y. Through COVID, amplified systemic racism and violence, loss, and joy, Buffalo continues to endure. We hope that by viewing this collection of work, you will see Buffalo as Mustafa sees it, with admiration and respect.
The exhibit will run from January 12 through February 24, 2023.
