rituals_rites.jpgThe author and photographer visited more than 100 countries over a 26-year period. Here he displays the omnipresent signs of our need to create traditions. The often exotic images range from Scotland’s Callanish Standing Stones, a Mayan shaman in Guatemala and Indonesia’s Balinese festival to the Swiss procession to the Alps and Ethiopian tribal dancers.

The images are now in the permanent collection of the Evansville, Illinois, Museum of Arts, History & Science.
