CHURCH, INC. – God’s own people
Priests, nuns, cardinals. they really deserve to be shot.
Of course i mean with a camera.
Photo essay from the streets of Rome with a couple from Mexico for good measure.
Oh, your highness, a stylish red robe around your midriff will work wonders to conceal your girth…
Come to me. Come with gold. And give it to me…
Modesty? We’ll leave that to our female employees: we’ll force them to dress as if the middle ages never ended.
And poverty, too. This little nun spent about ten minutes deciding if and how to spend her one euro.
Follow me as i am your shepherd. No really, i am. Shepherds always dress like this…
He’s young, he’s lost, and he’s kinda cute. If i move in casually, nobody will realize what i’m thinking…
Handsome priest in this calendar by photographer Piero Pazzi. Is this really what Jesus had in mind?
What’s better than a handsome priest? A sexy nun. This is the discarded package of a chocolate drink mix very popular in Mexico. Photograph taken in Cancun.
This one book written five hundred years ago by Fray Diego de Landa, a friar hellbent on converting the Maya indians to christianity, made me laugh and cry. Laugh when he talks of bad ‘fishes’ (manatees, i think) that wallow in the water displaying large erections. Cry when he describes how they were systematically destroying books, calendars, traditions of the Mayas. Talk about a lose-lose situation. The Mayas are still there, so church obviously lost, but so did we all.
Sestet in black and white: four young french priests, two roman pigeons.
This will never do: your skirt is so short i can actually see a bit of ankle…
Godspeed. A bearded, pony tailed orthodox priest photographed unorthodoxically: half a second exposure as he walked briskly by talking on his cellphone.
Yes. Sometimes i just like to talk about and photograph things which i do not understand.
Pope you enjoyed. Hope.
