Objective Faith? The Spiritual Object Studio Portrait Series
International award-winning Photographer and Anthropologist Liz Hingley joins Dr Andrew Davies, Department of Theology and Religion to discuss the series ‘Spiritual Object Studio’. For this new work Liz invites members of the public to have their portrait taken with an object they consider to have spiritual meaning and write a small caption to explain the spiritual significance the object has for them. After viewing and discussing some of these remarkable images taken in Paris, Texas USA and various locations around the UK, the open conversation will raise questions over the nature of spirituality and religion today in relation to material culture in everyday life.
