The photos–quiet and sharp–reflect an intersection of faith and secular subculture. Photos of women dancing wildly or counting dollar bills while wearing tight outfits bump against images of preachers and church goers worshiping at the altar. Though photographed mostly in the 1990s, the images appear almost like postcards from another era. Stylistically they reflect a film noir aesthetic: moody and dark yet always dignified.
‘American Spectator’ will be on display at Spot Photo Works from September 19 through November 9, 2015.
