RITUAL - 1982-2019
I am pleased to announce the publication of my book RITUAL, released worldwide by Hirmer Verlag, which will be available in bookstores and online in July-August, 2022.
The book contains over 100 images that were taken in twenty-six countries on six continents between 1982 and 2019 – a span of thirty-seven years. They document humans in the act of performing a wide array of rituals, both religious and secular. Rituals depicted herein include those of Animism, Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Shintoism. Folk festivals, military assemblies and parades are nonreligious rituals found in everyday life. Whether rituals are religious or secular, from his experience they are all, in some sense, sacred to those who perform them.
