Here’s an update to an old series: photos we’ve taken around the world of places of worship. There are some amazing and beautiful churches, synagogues and temples in all kinds of places, and I’m so interested in the ways that different groups of people use architecture to facilitate and enact worship. None of these photos are of Quaker Meeting houses, interestingly enough – I think I’ve tended to photograph the things that are different from my own experiences of worship. Enjoy!
The world is full of an incredible variety of places of worship. I have so enjoyed getting to see – and photograph – their diversity! The smell of altar candles and hush of people whispering as they enter the cool, dark spaces and the light through stained glass windows are things I’m never going to fully capture, but I do love getting to visit them all.
