Cosmelli and Monteleone & Bonaventura

MUSLIM COMMUNITIES IN EUROPE (Denmark / Germany / Great Britain / Sweden, 2006-2007)

Today there are about fifteen million Muslims in Europe. The Italian trio Cosmelli, Monteleone and Bonaventura photographed the dominant currents in countries such as Spain, England, Germany, The Netherlands and Sweden. They tried to work impartially, and each employed his own style. They saw people who are connected by their faith, but otherwise structure their lives in totally different ways. According to the three, that raises the question of what it means to speak of a European Muslim culture. Is this shaped primarily by European influences, or is it rather a catch-all of new cultures that remain immune to change?
