Ever since I grew my hair long I’ve had people (both friends and random strangers) claim I look like Jesus. Combined with the fact I was reading many spiritual texts, this got me to thinking it would be a fun challenge to play the role of Jesus in a fine art project. Suddenly the phrase “What Would Jesus Do” seemed a lot harder to answer.
Peter and I are currently hard at work aswering that question in another project due out later in 2013. In the meantime we stretched our imaginations with a practice project: Jesus Visits the Democratic National Convention. I spent the DNC week photographing all the events and then later we Photoshopped me into several of the scenes. I was inspired to showcase a playful (cartwheels in the streets) and down-to-earth side to Jesus – we hope you enjoy!
