"It was my last day in Balakot, Pakistan, covering the aftermath of the massive earthquake that killed tens of thousands and left large areas in ruins. I went to the main mosque to view the Friday prayer. The place was turned into a pile of rubble, but still people attended in large numbers. As the prayer started, the mosque was covered with worshippers. This represented hope for me. No matter the size of a tragedy, no matter how hopeless it seems, people will cope, come together and search for strength in their faith."
From Nuru Project curator JB's blog post about Espen's print:
My dad and I fall on opposite sides of the American political divide: I'm liberal and he's conservative. Like a lot of conservatives, my dad is deeply concerned by what he perceives to be a lack of outcry against radical Islam by the moderate majority of the faith. So I was pleasantly surprised last week when I saw that he'd ordered Espen Rasmussen's print. I called immediately to thank him for the support and ask why Espen's image spoke to him. He said that what he saw in the print were people of faith turning to God in their time of need. I'm sure that if a natural disaster struck my parents' community, they too would turn to their church for support. By showing how Islam helped people in Balakot, Pakistan cope with disaster, Espen's print humanizes and expands outsiders' understanding of the faith.
