Editorial Reviews

Review

Herman Krieger doesn't preach to the choir. He has seen through the pious facades of a lot of churches. -- San Jose Mercury News, Dec., 27, 1998

Herman Krieger has a good eye and a knack for taking an offbeat look at churches and their surroundings. -- The Dallas Morning News, Nov. 21, 1998

This sometimes irreverent photo essay draws a variety of responses. Christians see devotion. Atheists see satire. Photographers see artistry. -- New York Times Online Edition, Nov. 16, 1997

From the Back Cover

"This sometimes irreverent photo essay on churches draws a variety of responses. Christians see devotion. Atheists see satire. Photographers see artistry." Rebecca Fairly Raney, The New York Times Online Edition

"I delighted in the photo captions. Composing them must have given you as much pleasure as reading them gave me. I browsed through them with both pleasure and amusement." James Kilpatrick, Columnist

"Among the best examples of satire on the Internet." J. Michael Raymond, Editor, Contemporary Satire

"The captions are quite funny. The clergy particularly will have fun with your good work." Peter J. Gomes, The Memorial Church, Harvard University

"An oasis of creativity. Your good work is the pick of the month on the American Religion web site. I am proud to feature it." Briane Turley, Director, The American Religious Experience

Photography has long held a fascination for Herman Krieger. He worked as a photo lab technician during his teens in Detroit in the 1940's and served as an instructor in the Army Air Corps photo school. Earning a degree in mathematics from the University of California in Berkeley, he spent 30 years as a computer programmer in Europe. Upon retirement, he and his wife moved to Eugene, Oregon, where he promptly enrolled in the University of Oregon earning a bachelor's degree in fine arts.


More About the Author

I take photographs to amuse myself as well as the occasional spectator. Exhibiting photographs for mutual pleasure is similar to a comedian telling jokes to an appreciative audience. However, the comedy is more serious than the photography.

Viewers who see more in my photographs than I do probably have better vision. Those who see less than I do may be right, and I remain partially open to their criticism.

This is a fun book of photos by a man with a keen eye. Many of the pics are gut-busting hilarious.

The theme is religion but there is nothing here to offend the religious. I highly recommend Churches Ad Hoc: A Divine Comedy to every one.

Herman Krieger is an artist, a humorist, a social commentator. I keep this paperback on my coffee table. Krieger has more and later work on his web page -- google it; you can see much of his work there :)
