A Portrait of Faith
DMB Photographer Simon Robert's project ‘A Portrait of Faith’ is currently on show as part of the Sixteen Touring national exhibition currently on show at Format Festival in Derby until 14 April 2019.
‘A Portrait of Faith’ is a series of video portraits of individuals in their place of worship. The sitters remain as still as possible in a similar fashion to mid-19th century photographic portraits. Alongside the portrait each individual offers a short monologue where they talk about their current life situation, their hopes, dreams and fears for the future.
