Garin Horner is exhibiting his photography from the series: A Photo-Ethnographic Study of Private Spiritual Shrines & Altars
My images focus on intimate connections people have with places and objects that serve as focal points, where subjects feel strong links with transcendent beings, ethereal energies, and/or supernatural realities. Through devotion, presence, and attention, practitioner’s altar objects become infused with one’s spiritual/life energy.
I collaborate with those who want to give voice to and celebrate their own distinct views within a multitude of spiritual beliefs. They are believers in a supernatural meta-ecology, or structure of subtle dimensions that co-exist with our reality comprised of various beings (or forces).
Part of this view recognizes altars to be microcosms and/or nexuses of those subtle dimensions from which practitioners connect with higher powers, express their sense of devotion, and gain spiritual nourishment.
