Join Christopher Churchill for a signing of his book American Faith.
Christopher Churchill's debut monograph American Faith offers a unique perspective into the collective nature of the word "faith." It explores the way both secular and non-secular individuals address the basic need to be connected to something greater. Churchill approaches this task without dogma or judgment; his travels steer us through brothels, mega churches, and into living rooms, always with honesty and respect for the subjects. Interspersed we find quiet, expansive landscapes that give a geographical context to the scope of the project. Using an 8 x 10-inch view camera, Churchill manages to depict an intimate presence with each photograph. The individual portraits are paired with interviews of the subjects. We find at the end a beautiful and deep commonality in the way that individuals search for a voice and meaning to their lives.
