The 100 Churches Project

I started this in a small way, recording churches close to home, but it has grown into something much bigger, that involved lots of research and driving about, and encompasses temples, mosques, synagogues and other sacred places. Brisbane is full of such buildings that embody powerful spiritual meaning and are the focus of community sentiment.
These are places where people celebrate life, be it marriages, births, and deaths. People bear witness to loving unions; we mourn our departed loved ones. But these places are often just landmarks that we drive past, and they are not really in the public consciousness.
I wanted to record these places with integrity, just the fact of the place, and how it looked on a particular day, with weather, cars, people, traffic lights, no frills or “best face”. It became an obsession there for a while. I had to stop at 100 but I could have kept going. There are many I missed but I did my best.
