Sanctuary, Santa Fe, New Mexico, Winter 2017

Printed on 5 x7 matte archival fine art paper.

Unlimited Edition

I took this photograph during a break from a prayer retreat at a Santa Fe monastery in the winter of 2017. Santa Fe had just declared itself a Sanctuary City, where immigrants could find refuge. I remembered the first time I had heard about the idea of sanctuary. I was living in Germany as a teenager and was active in the anti-nuclear movement, when some protesters took sanctuary within a church, thus avoiding arrest. I was struck by that at the time, as I had not known the history of church as sanctuary. Today Germany is at the forefront of the green movement that found its beginnings in the 1970s anti-nuclear protests. So, this winter, feeling immensely proud of my tiny hometown for declaring itself a sanctuary, I saw this image of this church as a reclaiming of a complex history of religion in New Mexico -- a history that witnessed both healing and harm.

We all have the opportunity to rewrite history. Will we harm or heal?
