Maloula: Festival of the Cross

These are part of an ongoing project shot in Maloula, Syria, in August 2008 and September 2009. The work presents aspects of Christian culture in a predominantly Muslim country, with particular focus on a single family, and a religious festival commemorating a beacon lit to carry news across the Holy Land in the Byzantine era, of the supposed discovery of a fragment of the Cross.

The first exhibition from this body of work was in Solihull Gallery in the summer of 2010.
