About the Book
For over 2,000 years Christians across the world have meditated upon, written about, created art and thanked God for the wonder of the Cross and Crucifix. Its presence is a photographer’s dream.
Culled from more than 150 images, this book presents 70 photographs I have taken in various cemeteries over the last 13 years which embody the theme: “The Crucifixion of Jesus". These photographic reproductions were taken in mostly Catholic cemeteries in the United States, Mexico, Brazil, Puerto Rico and Portugal.
With each photograph the shooting location and the year the photo was taken are sited along with appropriate biblical quotes on Jesus, the Lord, the crucifix and the Crucifixion as well as suitable quotes from various writers and scholars.
It is apparent to me that the Catholic cemeteries have carried on the artistic tradition of depicting Christ being crucified on the Cross. This is especially true with the Hispanic culture and its families that continue to depict the crucifixion of Jesus in their cemeteries. In a way they have created their own art form that exemplifies this important event.
It is my hope my photographs show Christian art in a positive way and provides salvation to the readers as they page through the book.
