We Became Everything
In “We Became Everything” George Voronov attempts to photograph what a spiritual experience feels like. Spending time with young people in religious communities and on spiritual retreats throughout Ireland, Voronov found that all those photographed shared permutations of one core conviction. This was a belief in the existence of two worlds. Our material world as well as a second, mysterious spiritual world. The idea of photographing a link between these worlds, a nexus where the veil between them is thinnest, became a subject of fascination. These intersections take the form of fleeting revelations, subtle rifts in reality, and a feeling of connection to the divine. In such instances, the banal gives way to the sublime. They are metaphysical decisive moments.
