The images I chose to submit were from a series I started when I was abroad in the fall of 2008. While I was in Europe I really began to explore my religious background and I found that while I was in the middle of the most religious places in the world that I was truly inspired. From that inspiration I came up with a group of photographs that truly embrace the things that I saw and experienced. — Carrie Engerrand
