The Churches Of The World Project

In early 2009 my interests in photography and spirituality found common ground while standing in the historic Unitarian Church on Archdale Street in Charleston, SC. I realized that despite Charleston’s abundance of beautiful churches rarely did people actually experience them collectively. I also discovered that few modern collective photographic representations of them could be found. From there I set out to photograph Charleston’s churches. As time passed the project grew into what is today The Churches Of The World.

This also meant that it was rather easy to buy much older cameras and use them just as I would any other camera, film being more readily available at the time. By the time I was 19 I had some 215 cameras in my room on custom built shelves or spinning displays that I got from department stores that no longer needed them. When I moved to Charleston at age 20 I unfortunately decided to part with the majority of my camera collection. Yeah, bad move. Still, I hung on to many of them because, in addition to photography, I also love design and there are some truly beautifully designed cameras out there. It’s an interesting idea to me that a camera can not only create beautiful things but can also be a beautiful creation in itself; tools can be both functional and beautiful. A camera is the tool which photographers use to capture light, but can’t it be fun to use a...
