Certain churches speak to me. I can feel the spirit in these churches. They comfort me in a way having little to do with conventional faith, though I am a believer.
I've always enjoyed photographing churches, particularly older rural churches. I've written a personalized history of a few churches that play a large role in my family history.

Salem Primitive Baptist Church, Wendell, NC
Founded 1784. My paternal STANCIL line has strong ties to this church. My great great grandparents and my great grandfather are buried here. I'd like to document the history of Salem PBC.
