Inspired by a Kate Bush song “Symphony in Blue” (EMI 1979) this project is a search for the universal. All images in the book are from a curated selection of Google image search results for ‘God’. Most areas of poverty have heavy traditions towards religion, I would get church pamphlets everyday in Flatbush, some with the most beautiful imagery of light breaking through clouds. I wanted just those types of images to be my “church pamphlet”.
