Sacred Places

For over ten years, Val Brinkerhoff has traveled the world, exploring man's greatest creations. In an effort to understand these sacred places, Brinkerhoff began an intensive study of temples and their significance in different cultures. In addition to research, he traveled to forty countries (many trips with students) to study and photograph the world's greatest monuments in stone. In his travels, he saw repeating visual patterns in the basic form of temples worldwide. The result is a massive and beautiful collection of photographs.
