Camille Zakharia’s tri-part Elusive Homelands, documented in this issue of Blackbird’s Gallery, was on display at Virginia Commonwealth University’s Doha, Qatar campus October 4 through November 8, 2006. Interviewed by contributing editor Jeff Lodge, Zakharia discusses how his own displacement, and the unlikely prospect of immigrants returning home, informs his paintings and photo collages.  end of text
