Based in Indianapolis, Chris Minnick is an independent photog-rapher with 30 years o experience. His work centers mostly onphilanthropic organizations – the lie and practices o churches,colleges, community oundations, and other non-prots.His interest is to preserve the authenticity o the moment,capturing a glimpse o the emotion and energy he sees in thescenes he encounters.“My subject is real people, real stories,” he says.“I shoot things as they are, hoping to reinorce and enhance theintegrity and believability o the moment. I hope viewers comeaway with more respect or what they are seeing.” Over the years, he has photographed activities in scores o con-gregations. This
chronicles a ew o those moments.“What strikes me when I walk into a church, no matter whatthe denomination, is the power o community I see there – thecapability o a church to gather neighbors and riends. And aterwards, they take with them or the rest o the week a aithand belie that make their lives better.”
