Small Churches Photographed by Kevin Bauman

A large part of the irony to Kevin Bauman’s series on ‘Small Churches’ is that they are exactly that. Small. The idea of a church, congers thoughts of palace like structures and grand cathedrals. Buildings whose lavish golden interiors are there, to act as the earthy embodiment of the divine and the conduit connecting worshippers to it. Bauman’s churches are the opposite and possibly more honest as a result. These houses of worship are quite literally, former houses or old stores, some are converted workshops but all are run down or abandoned. Often the only signifier distinguishing the building from its own past is the presence of a crudely painted sign and its promise of refuge.

Kevin Bauman is a Denver based photographer specializing in architectural, interior, and industrial photography. Kevin’s photography has been featured in a number of exhibitions and has had his work appeared in numerous journals and publications including The New York Times. Besides his professional practice, Bauman is best known for his personal documentary projects such as 100 Abandoned Houses series.

    I have noticed that in unwanted cameras, extraordinary detectors help to maintain focus automatically.
    Those sensors with some video cameras change in in the area of contrast,
    while others work with a beam involving infra-red (IR) light,
    especially in low lighting. Higher standards cameras often
    use a combination of both systems and could have Face Priority AF where the digital camera
    can ‘See’ the face while focusing only on that.
    Thank you for sharing your ideas on this website.
