Ordinances and AngelsOrdinances and Angels is about the observation of dress codes within the evangelical Christian tradition in Northern Ireland. This body of work documents to the practice of head-covering informed by biblical belief. Judge in yourselves: is it comely that a woman pray unto God uncovered? (1 Corinthians 11:13) (KJV). Brought up within the Free Presbyterian Church and Brethren Sunday School, the photographer draws upon an insider experience in making a series of portraits which are non-traditional and dignified. In adopting a heavenly viewpoint what is made strange and concealed is countered by what is revealed. The use of such a viewing point suggests a search for other perceptual possibilities beyond 'reason or religiosity'.
