Although I was raised in the Russian Orthodox tradition (and was an “altar boy” into my early teens), somehow – inexplicably - I have never before seriously trained my camera’s “eye” onto the rich aesthetic forms I had so long admired and that adorn most Russian Orthodox churches. Until, that is, one fateful spring day a few years ago when I chanced upon a beautiful Orthodox church not far from where I live in northern Virginia (St Nicholas Cathedral,Wash DC).

Its ornate but soulful interior gently reminded me of my own spiritual roots, and of my need to revisit and replenish them. And so began a quiet journey over the next few months that took me to several Orthodox Churches in the DC area, and the one closest to my heart, in my hometown on Long Island, NY (Our Lady of Kazan, in Sea Cliff). Somewhere along the way I also rediscovered myself.

This book consists of 50 duotoned black and white images of Russian Orthodox Church interiors (mostly in the Washington DC, northern Virginia area; and a few from Sea Cliff, NY).
