For 15 years Jan Locus photographed the many faces of Christianity. Christianity has two billion believers worldwide, who practice their religion on a personal, cultural and regional way. Pilgrims in Poland, Christians in Africa and India, passionate believers in Mexico, the drawn war believers in Ireland, Jan Locus portrayed them all in a superb black and white photography. A unique book with a contemporary approach to religion, rites, and devotion.
