Religion is a major category of our website, due to our personal
interests in the topic and the frequent assignments Sean undertakes for
Catholic organizations. Through his work with Maryknoll Magazine and
Catholic Near East's One Magazine, he makes frequent visits to Christian
organizations around the globe. These include the work of
missioners in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Fathers, Sisters and lay
missionaries and volunteers are dedicating their lives to alleviate the
suffering of the poor in many countries through their aid projects,
while evangelical missions are intent on spreading their faith. A large
part of the archive covers the eastern rite Catholics, such as the
Unionate or Greco-Catholic church of Ukraine,
the Syro-Malabar and
Syro-Malankar Catholics of Kerala, India, plus the Byzantine Catholics
of Bulgaria. Various Orthodox churches such as the Russian, Ukrainian,
Indian are also widely
represented. Art and
architecture of churches and religious
establishments are covered in detail, including the fine frescoes of
Ohrid in Macedonia, Constantinople in Turkey as well as
Tigray in Ethiopia.
The Islam category offers a selection of photos, especially of
Morocco, and of people at prayer in various
countries. Buddhism is represented by images from Tibet,
Burma. The archive also features Hinduism from
