Churches Ad Hoc: A Divine Comedy
Description (some review statements)
What Krieger has managed to capture in this marvelous book of photographs is the sometimes absurd ways in which we perceive religion, demonstrating it's pervasive influence in our lives.
Superb photography is complemented by a keen eye for comedy.
A sometimes irreverent photo essay on churches draws a variety of responses.
Christians see devotion. Atheists see satire. Photographers see artistry.
There is a kind of antiphony between the pictures and the captions that is truly comic.
