Liz Hingley: Under Gods
Thu, September 27, 2012 • 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM • WCH 4.118
Under Gods showcases the intimate work of photographer Liz Hingley, who studies the myriad of faiths that make up the fabric of contemporary British society. Hingley developed this project by spending time in her own urban environment, Birmingham—England’s second-largest city—and carefully observing the diversity of its people on one street. Focusing often on material expressions of faith, she uses photography to reveal how religions are uniquely experienced and inhabited by people. In doing so, she shows faith-based practices that stand in thoughtful contrast to “official” versions of religion, or faith as defined by leaders and texts.
