Sacred Photography – A Shot That Will Rock Your Soul

The following photograph haunts my mind.

I found it on the blog ( of an artist who had a horrific life changing experience and has now turned his life, and possibly his art, over to Christ.

The photo stopped me cold.

But you say, these shoppers could be wonderful, God fearing, neighbor loving people.

True enough.

Then, why do you judge them?

I don’t.

It’s the entire photograph.

It makes me judge, and question, myself – in relation to God and my neighbor.

This is truly one of the functions of the sacred arts.
