Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
I originally heard this text from the New Testament Letter to the Hebrews as lyrics in ‘Song for Lovers’ by Liberty X ft Rev Run, though it is more traditionally attributed to Saint Paul.
However, my musical taste aside, for me it explains more than Christian faith. I think that all faith is, above all, a hope. A hope for something new. Something after life. Maybe something better.
I believe that hope has pushed us to build amazing structures. It can bring people together and, similarly, it can drive them apart too. Hope has helped people to carry on and given them peace when they can’t.
I think faith is an incredible force and I like to capture that force in motion.
I’ve used this collection to show different aspects of faith and examples of it’s presence in the world.
