I have received the following request, met with and spoken to the artist herself, and am happy to recommend the project to members of our parish. Lois will be at the 11:15 Mass for the next couple of weeks, and can be contacted on 621 659 571 or by email.

The People and The Church Photography Project

Hello! I am an artist in resident through the Ministry of Culture for 10 weeks in Bourglinster and I’m from Milwaukee, WI. I am very impressed by the role of the Catholic church here in Luxembourg and am doing a project about the people, the church and the community.

I am in need of volunteers of all ages. I am doing portraits and informal audio interviews of people who regularly attend church and also priests, nuns and people who work or volunteer at the Catholic church.

I hope to make at least 25 portraits during my short stay here, please help me make this happen! I would like to photograph you in a place of meaning to you (in the church or your home…) and then ask you about your experiences and the church and the community.

If you would like to participate it will take about an hour of your time and I will give you a print. The photos are for gallery/museum type shows. I will travel anywhere in Luxembourg so please pass the word along as I would like to get many different people.

I apologize I only speak English and a tiny bit of French! You can contact me if you have any questions or to schedule a time. Thank you so much for your consideration.
