  “If I have read the New Testament aright, it leaves no room for ‘creativeness’ even in a modified or metaphorical sense. Our whole destiny seems to lie in the opposite direction, in being as little as possible ourselves, in acquiring a fragrance that is not our own, but borrowed; in becoming clean mirrors filled with the image of a face that is not ours.... An author should never conceive himself as bringing into existence beauty or wisdom which did not exist before, but simply and solely as trying to embody in terms of his own art some reflection of eternal Beauty and Wisdom.... And always, of every idea and of every method the Christian will ask not ‘Is it mine?’, but ‘Is it good?’”  
    C.S. Lewis

A note from one of the photographers:
 

Photography means to write with light. Jesus Christ claimed to be not only the Son of God, but also the Light of the world. In fully acknowledging Him in my works, I feel I am photographing (writing in light) in the purest form.

As I have seen thus far, the most complete expression of this light has been (in) His love for us. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son so that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)

My guarantee of this everlasting life was not realized until I believed the claims of Jesus and began to follow His precepts. Since then I have come to know my Creator in a very intimate and personal way. He is always waiting with outstreched arms to meet me and care for my needs; as well as yours. However, God is not proud, and He will never force His way on anyone. He wants us to come to Him humbly and in all meekness. Then He will reveal Himself to us so that we might share in the fullness of His love.

This collection of photographs describes life without Jesus (Paradise Lost) and that fullness of of life with Him (Paradise Found). I hope you enjoy the show.
