A cartoon before first communion: Susan Kandel’s best photograph

‘Left to her own devices, she’d be in a T-shirt and out in the dirt. But she’s been told to be good, stand still and not mess up her dress’This photo was easy because this is my niece, who’s getting ready for her first communion. Her normal state was to be very active, never stationary for more than a minute. Left to her own devices, she’d be wearing a T-shirt and probably out there in the dirt. What I see in this picture is that she’s been told to be good, stand still and not mess up her dress....

This morning at 5:54, a man erected a large cross on the empty plinth where the "Forward!" statue had stood until protesters tore it down last week.

We happened to be driving by: The shirt says "We want more" (front) and "SOULutions" (BACK). I'd gotten out of the car to take the second picture, and as I was getting back, a black man walked up to me and began, "I'm from Minnesota...." I said "Sorry" and got in the car. The man went up to the guy who was putting up the cross (and the woman who was there with him).I couldn't hear the conversation, but the man with the cross listened, handed the man what I assume was money, continued to talk ...

Katie Waggett's best photograph: Sunday worship with Joy

‘Joy was dancing in church with her children in London. She was in her element – her dress speaks to her sense of cultural pride’Her name is Joy and I photographed her outside one of the many African churches in south-east London. I had just finished photographing a mosque on the same bland industrial estate when I found the blue wall, then spotted Joy dancing in the church with her children. I thought: “That’s a portrait I’ve got to get,” and asked if she’d come outside and have her photograph ...

Jesus Christ superstars: meet the modern-day messiahs

David Shayler worked for MI5, Vissarion was a traffic policeman… now both preach as the son of God. Jonas Bendiksen tells Paula Cocozza about his portraits of 21st-century messiahsJonas Bendiksen grew up in a “godless home” in Tønsberg, Norway, which makes him an unlikely candidate to photograph the messiah, let alone six of them. But this is what he has spent the past three years doing: chronicling the lives of men – and they are all men – who claim to be Jesus returned to Earth, from Siberia t...

Marrie Bot's best photograph: bath-time on an ancient pilgrimage through Andalucía

‘We were out on the trail for three days with no shops and nothing to eat. And all I had with me was my camera, 20 rolls of film and a T-shirt’ I’ve been taking photographs on the El Rocío pilgrimage for 40 years, and it’s still just as intense an experience as it was the first time. Each year, more than 100 brotherhoods travel to the hermitage at El Rocío from all over Andalucía. I had heard that the Brotherhood of Triana was famous for its richness and its beauty, so in 1976 I decided to trave...

Open Mike: Your Belief System (OT)

(for K.M.) Everybody has a belief system. It's just sometimes difficult to make out what it is. The simplest and plainest choice is religion. I don't say that in a denigrating way; it's just that religion offers itself up specifically as a belief system, so it's not surprising when many people use it that way. Of course "religion" is a sprawling category. We've recently been having a bit of a flareup in the fracas between Christianity and its younger sibling Islam (which has been going on more...

What Happened To Craig Mack? (And Why Do So Many Ex-Bad Boy Artists Become Religious Fanatics?)

After a generally well received and meme-worthy Bad Boy reunion performance at the 2015 BET awards, the soon to be retired mogul Diddy took to Instagram to praise Lil Kim’s showmanship, and informally announce the coming of a Bad Boy Reunion tour. Earlier this year, he shared more details with DJ Khaled — the Dale Carnegie of rap — on his  “We The Best Radio” segment. Diddy gushed: “For the first time every hit record I ever did and every guest you could imagine is going to kick this tour o...

Megachurches: photographing America's drab new cathedrals

A moment that changed me: how my camera helped me re-focus on my faith | Jim Grover

It started as a photograpy project, shadowing an Anglican minister. But it led me to a way of being marked by kindness, generosity and community spiritOne Friday afternoon in late summer of 2014, I walked into a church that I had never entered, even though it is just around the corner from my home of 17 years, in Clapham, south London. I approached a man I had met just once and asked if I could shadow him with my camera for the next year.Quite some ask. He was about to go on holiday and, not unr...

There Are More LGBT People Of Faith Out There Than You Think

Watch Two Antigay Televangelists Defend Their Private Jets

While recently flying home on his sleek private jet from a religious convention, antigay televangelist Jesse Duplantis was asked by God himself, “Do you like your plane? Do you really like it?” This prompted Duplantis to have a long, hard think about his use of private jets. Afterwards, he determined that, yes, he does like his plane. Not only that, but he needs it. Because without his private jet, he would have to fly commercial, and that’s simply not conducive to spreading the word of Jesus. ...
