This gallery of images is the end result of a twenty-year-long project that has led to the

publication of six books and several photograph exhibitions. You won’t find captions

describing where or when the photos were taken or the particular religion featured.

This long period of research has reinforced my conviction that faith, both individual

and collective, meets a need shared by all humanity. The precepts, rituals and prayers

differ but the deep roots they share reveal more similarities than differences. If we

want to find meaning in the chaos, we might start with individual prayer, where the

most profound spirituality seeks answers and consolation, and culminate in collective

celebrations, where belief becomes a symbol, an event or a sharing of values. It is

these similarities between the faiths, manifested in the similar gestures used across

different religions, that led me to explore different beliefs, places and symbols.
