body and blood

This project documents, through photography, Christian Holy Week and Easter around the world. Each year, I travel to a different country and do my best to capture definitive imagery. So far I've passed Holy Week in Guatemala, the Philippines, Spain, Haiti, Italy, Greece, Ethiopia, Colombia, Armenia, Israel, Russia, India, Egypt, New Zealand, Australia, Easter Island (Chile), Lebanon, Brazil, Senegal, Mongolia, and Mexico. The first year, in 2003, I innocently photographed Good Friday processions here in New York not knowing it might be my life's work.
