After the success of the first sold-out edition of ‘Hidden Islam’ and the second reprint, ‘Hidden Islam – 479 comments’ aims to take the discussion further.
This limited edition workbook charts the topographic locations of the Islamic makeshift places visited by its author, photographer Nicolò Degiorgis. Formally, this publication parallels to the photographic series present in ‘Hidden Islam – Islamic makeshift places of worship in North East Italy’: each page number finds a correspondence between the two books.
After the photographic book received international acclaim – ‘Hidden Islam’ was awarded the Rencontres d’Arles’ Author Book Award 2014 – the project was given a remarkable media coverage. ‘Hidden Islam – 479 comments’ also presents a vivid discussion appeared on British newspaper ‘The Guardian’ in response to an article featuring the project.
Presented as an appendix, this addition to the project is meant to extend the debate around ‘Hidden Islam’, proving the urgency of a discussion in the European public arena as well as providing study materials for sociologists, anthropologists, journalists and everyone else interested in the matter.
