Editorial Reviews

Review

"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."
(Photography Collector)

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Dave Jordano is one of the most interesting american photographers, unfortunately not known enough. His work is always a shock, bright colors, strong lines and special moods. His pictures can remind at Alec Soth's work, but they are just much stronger. I am not interested in churches and faith. But Jordano's work brings you further, beyond churches and faith. It is great photography. If I had a wish, it would be to see Jordano's work on the Mid-West published. It would for sure add a big name to american photography.
