at the last gathering of the ealing photography group i am part of we explored urban interventions - - it was a really inspiring evening. there are three blog posts of some of the presentations and discussions on the ealing group blog - life during lockdown ; clap for carers ; colonialism, street art and earthquakes. the last one was mine which you may recognise if you followed my posts from new zealand.
as well as presentations, members also shared photos in response to the theme. the photo below was my offering.
hopefully it speaks for itself but some in the group did not read it as easily as i expected so to give a bit of context, i repurposed a found sign to reframe the sharing of bread and wine at the meal table in a home. this practice was right at the heart of jesus' life and he got in trouble for eating with the wrong people. christians down the centuries have continued this in memory of his inspirational life, death and resurrection. and yet it has become one of the most tightly controlled ares of the church's practice. this has been exemplified in the church of england's (of which I am a part) response to communion in lockdown while people are at home. i blogged about this before - share communion in your own home and resist the power of religious control so won't repeat that here. but hope that helps frame the idea a bit.
