For the past few years I have been involved in a personal project I call "Places Of The Spirit." The photographic subjects can include anything that touches the inner person from birth experiences to formal religion to weddings to death.
The attached series of images are taken around churches and cemeteries, and used film cameras with black and white film with some sepia toning for the photos presented.
The photos of "Our lady" and the "Barren Plant" outside the church door were taken with a Holga plastic "Toy" camera which gives a somewhat soft and distorted look in some situations. The photo of the cemetery angel and the church pillars were taken with a Leica IC camera and a 21mm Bessa VC lens. The last photo of the sunburst was taken with a pinhole camera.
I have many more from this series which I will present later.
