Neal Slavin: BELIEF
Opened Spring 2020
In The Prayer Project, photographer Neal Slavinexplores the fundamental need of people to gather together and connect spiritually in order to face things beyond their understanding. Slavin has depicted such occasions in many ways and in mostly sacred spaces, photographing different prayer styles and customs around New York City. His interest is in the private spiritual experience captured on each face in a crowd of hundreds or even thousands, that moment of personal transcendence that can only be accessed as part of a larger community.
