Receiving the Light of Christ

When I first started attending the Holy Week services at St. James Episcopal Cathedral, Chicago, I was deeply struck by the visual power of these ancient rites. They are the most important celebrations of the Christian year and I wanted to explore and capture with the camera the interplay of darkness and light; the juxtaposition of the familiar and the strange; moments of inwardness, isolation, intimacy and communion; the vulnerable human being moving in community to encounter the mystery of God.
