As both photographers and engaged citizens, the members of STRATA Collective explore the notions of faith and the things people hold onto in times of uncertainty, whether it be God, country, communities, resources, family, or ideas. We’ve seen these struggles play out in towns and cities across the country – human dramas that unfold in the street. It’s on the street that faith is proclaimed, tested, reinforced and abandoned, against the backdrop of a rapidly changing American landscape.

This collection represents both new and previously exhibited photographs by the STRATA Collective, specially curated for this exhibition under the theme of “Faith.”

About the Collective: Strata is a photography collective borne out of a shared passion for the still image. Its members seek to document the beauty, humor, mystery and absurdity in the quotidian. Strata is neither interested in stock photography nor in images that are simply illustrative. STRATA strives to create images that are hard to make and even harder to categorize; pictures that raise more questions than answers and reflect an eclectic, diverse worldview.
