This touring exhibition opens new doors into the lives of the largest group of Muslims in New Zealand and in the world as a whole: those of Asian descent.

Photographer Ans Westra and writer Adrienne Jansen – armed with a camera and a tape recorder, take a trip through the country catching up with people in their everyday lives.

The Asia New Zealand Foundation commissioned The Crescent Moon exhibition and accompanying book in 2009 to increase understanding of New Zealand’s Asian Muslim communities, and to encourage greater dialogue and interaction.
