An Exhibit of Photographs by Huzzatul Mursalini
I am a photographer and involved in this fantastic passion since 2010. My works represent the people, places, and cultures around me. I am also a microbiologist by profession. I moved to the Oklahoma City of USA in pursuance of a Ph.D. degree. I am studying the pathogenic mechanism of a blinding bacterial eye infection called endophthalmitis. Besides my time to investigate science curiosity, I spend my leisure time photographing people and places around me.
My thirst in photography developed from my curiosity in the people and their way of dealings with the lives around them. Photography is the only thing which makes me feel comfortable and helps me to fight a tough time. I’m still an amateur photographer. As I'm not a professional photographer, I always try to express my photograph in a simple way. Photography stimulates the nourishment for my soul. However, I am still not sure about the fate of the soul without a body, so I try to sell my images personally and through image agencies to sustain my corporeal self.
And thank you for visiting my work. I appreciate your visit.

Come see this intriguing collection on the third floor, near the Service Desk of the Library.
An art gallery is located on the 3rd Floor of the Bird Library. The gallery was established for an exhibit that was set to display on the OUHSC campus due to the health related subject matter.
In the fall of 2012 the first exhibit titled Silent Witnesses was installed. The pieces on display commissioned the talent of artists using prosthetic legs as subject matter. Nearly 800 innocent people are either killed or maimed each month as a result of more than 100 million mines lying scattered across more than 60 countries throughout the world. The artists hope viewers will identify with the ever-increasing humanitarian and diplomatic efforts to stop the land mine epidemic from spreading. For more information on this collaboration originally between the United Nations and the Center for International Health and Cooperation, see Previous Exhibits.
At the time the Library had no mechanism for displaying the art work; the Library was able to purchase custom art walls through the generosity of the College of Medicine, headed by Dean DeWayne Andrews.
The art work is changed periodically, 2-4 exhibits are hosted per year. Exhibits are developed from the collections of faculty, students, staff (or their family members) affiliated with the university or are on loan from the Fred Jones, Jr. Museum of Art on the Norman campus.
