Chris Roche – Devotion

‘Over five years I photographed both the intimate and epic nature of several faith traditions: private moments of prayer and meditation alongside monumental scenes with thousands of pilgrims in dramatic landscapes. This journey took me to the Himalayas and the Andes; the republics of the North Caucasus, Chechnya, Ingushetia and Dagestan; to the remote and holy Mount Kailash on the Tibetan plateau; to a Kurdish village in the Zagros mountains of Iran; to Varanasi, one of the oldest cities in the world; and to the highlands of northern Ethiopia. I saw commonalities that transcend faith and frontiers – the use of prayer beads, the practice of pilgrimage and the devotion to shrines to name a few, and of course just as many differences.
Many of these ancient traditions are now being lost. I hope that this project is in some small way a testament to the importance of these traditions – traditions that reflect a shared and fundamental aspect of the human condition that dates back to the dawn of time.’ Chris Roche
