Khaki Hat and the Jesus Illusion

This wall is in the front room of an abandoned house, between the doors leading back to the kitchen.

An old, filthy Khaki hat hangs on the wall in front of a cross. Next to it is a faded ad for Eric Miller, a Republican politician who ran for governor years ago. Between the hat and the political ad is a printout of the "Jesus Illusion." If you stare at the dots in the middle of the face on the paper, it looks like the face of Christ appears.

This is one of four tiny abandoned log cabins that sit next to each other on the north side of US-33, just south of the small town of Benton, in rural Elkhart County, Indiana. The inside walls of the cabin are covered in religious signs.

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
