"Among the thing I like most about the series [of photographs] is its ideal use of the book format: lifting the cover and turning the pages mimics the physical act of opening a door and peering in. I love the signs of life in each room: the bongo drums, the hand-sewn pillows, the plastic cutlery set for a meal, the makeshift tubs for baptism, the chairs that have been spray-painted gold. . . . These are the signs of work and care which make the expression "House of Worship" ring true--a home away from home, a place to commune."
(New Yorker Book Bench Blog
"Extraordinary photographs that capture the identity and personality of each church."
