How do you mark spiritual journeys? Week two of our collection spotlights looks at the photography of Kelvin Burzon. Born in the Philippines (1989), the Indiana-based artist uses the dramatic lighting effect of chiaroscuro, to explore the last days of Christ through the lens of a Gay-POC-Christian. Surrounding ourselves with art that celebrates faith and diversity is at the top of our list. Check out our Burzon collection below, and then visit the artist's website here. Marking spiritual journeys makes Kelvin Burzon's art, our tip of the week.
