This image was entered in a Members’ Exhibition at PhotoAccess entitled ‘In Sequence‘, 28 January — 21 February 2016. The remit said: “For many artists, photography is not only about single images, but relationships between multiple images. A sequence of images can tell a particular story or narrative, create a sense of visual poetry, or suggest movement and time passing. In Sequence showcases works by PhotoAccess members creatively addressing the photographic sequence.”
Some forms of activism are public and readily seen and heard. Prayer, on the other hand, is often a private way of seeking change. This gentleman, seen praying in an open-air mass in Place Vauban, Paris 7ème, bridges the gap and brings the private into a public space.
