Carl de Keyzer: For The Love Of God

Carl De Keyzer... The Great Passion Play, Bible Land, Eureka Springs (1990). From the exhibition Carl de Keyzer: For The Love Of God at Higher Pictures. "...Reacting to the Gulf War in 1990, Belgian artist Carl de Keyzer traveled to the United States to document the incestuous relationship between government and religion. Camouflaged in a rented Winnebago, de Keyzer traveled through America photographing a range of Christian organizations, from Mormons staging Bible story pageants in rural upstate New York to the 'Sons of God' religious motorcyclists at Bike Week in Daytona Beach."
