Megan Project – Christopher Arciniegas

IMG_7012For this Megan Project, I took a picture of la Virgen de Guadalupe that was on my friend’s night stand. Although the figure relates to the Catholic religion, it is more of a sense of security to keep it by your side. In this case, the image of la Virgen de Guadalupe brings comfort and hope to my friend and also brings the room out of the profane space and into the sacred. La Virgen de Guadalupe can be a mother to people, which is how religion should be, caring and understanding. Even though my friend is not very religious in her everyday life, having the image in her room always reminds her of the bigger picture and what religion is all about. Religion is about loving and caring for one another and it will always be there for you whenever you need it.
