New Allegory: A Journey of Evolving Vision

The journey stated in the back yard in a different era: a curiosity of a culture celebrating Christmas in January…using shotguns, continuing their traditions half a world away from their origins. Photographer Larry Angier recognized it and it launched his own voyage of discovery taking him back to the start in those far away and ancient lands.
But not wanting to stay in the background and simply show a literal record of his discovery in  America and abroad, Angier has embarked into creating a new and evolving rendering of his interpretation of this ancient culture and faith, to showcase the beauty of its inner sanctum and timelessness. His presentation will present the tessera of his newest work, a metaphoric mosaic leading to his New Allegory, a new vision of his odyssey.
