Bible Road: Signs of Faith in the American Landscape
For the last 25 years, photographer Sam Fentress has travelled America taking architectural photographs as his full-time profession. Along the way, he has encountered illustrative signs of faith along the nation's highways, country roads and back alleyways. "Bible Road: Signs of Faith in the American Landscape" is the result of these sometimes sought, sometimes serendipitous encounters. A photographic chronicle emerges from the most unlikely places, from beauty salon windows to highway pylons and burger joint marquees. These pictures, both individually and collectively, offer a remarkable insight into a distinctly American religious phenomenon, which may cause us to reflect on our own religious cultures and attitudes.
