The Strait and Narrow is a book of photographs that explores and documents the nature of religious festivals and rituals as a universal connection to both our ancestors and our mortality. The images follow the pilgrims as they attempt to negotiate the passage of life in preparation for that dark and murky place, the in–between, the hereafter. Paul Bunyan’s “Pilgrims Progress” is referenced, a catalyst for exploration of Christian’s journey through rituals that test spiritual dedication and devotion. Photographed in different parts of the world, what becomes apparent is that fears are shared universally and beliefs are similar. Sounds, smells and colors change, but the mysteries and magic are the same.
