“Trinity” – I took this image in Lima, Peru capital. Religion plays important role in peoples life over there and you can see its influence over many aspects of everyday activities. But even having this knowledge, I was surprised to see this image of Jesus Christ in this place where character, style and purpose was far different than the character of the typical rich and splendorous churches where you usually can see this image. I was stunned by this juxtaposition but I also asked myself a question: Is it possible that the same kind of religious people who placed the image of Jesus Christ in a obscure toilet would be among those people protesting against exhibiting Andres Serrano “Piss Christ” or against exhibiting the picture above?
