LAURIE ZUCKERMAN: JESUS CHRIST STATUES FROM COLONIAL MEXICAN CHURCHES











Laurie Beth Zuckerman posts a new series of photographs of Jesus Christ from Colonial Mexico. These amazingly poignant statues grace the old churches in Colonial towns such as, Oaxaca, Mitla, Guanajuato, and San Miguel de Allende. I concentrate on photographing these images of Jesus every time I am lucky to visit Mexico. The highlight of my trips is my time alone in these quiet, cool Catholic Churches, away from the crowds and traffic noise. Stop back by later this week for more photos from this series of Jesus with the Crown of Thorns.

Once again, my Sunday posts are crosslinked with Rebecca Brooks' blog and her weekly posts entitled, Stumbling Toward Ecstasy:  http://corazon.typepad.com/recuerda_mi_corazon/2011/02/stumbling-towards.html

So beautiful. Great photos and I can only imagine the feel of the quiet in the churches. Mesmerizing.

Your images are so incredibly moving. Each time I see statues like these I think about the masses of people who have gazed upon and prayed to them throughout the years. Really powerful!

Such powerful and touching images. Enormously so, especially during the season of Lent.
