Erin Dunigan’s work has taken her around the world, as she seeks to focus attention on stories of people and everyday life in places that may be geographically far away, but which, in their humanity, can connect us. Ordained as a Presbyterian evangelist, she says, “Photography, at its most basic, is really about paying attention. It can be spiritual practice, a way of awakening to the present moment. Yet it is also about sharing that vision with others, as we seek to see not only what is but what is possible.” Born and raised in Southern California, she has lived in New Jersey, as well as St. Andrews, Scotland. She now spends much of her time in a small coastal community in Baja California, Mexico.
The exhibit opens in conjunction with the January 24-26 seminar “Christianity after Religion: The End of Church and the Birth of a New Spiritual Awakening.” Noted author Diana Butler Bass leads that event which focuses on questions raised by congregations, seminaries, and faith-based organizations and individuals who seek to be faithful at a time when former and current ways of being “church” are waning.
