"The Spiritual Matter" is an on-going photo and research project about objects of devotion.

def. under numerous appearances, these objects of devotion are mediation tools whose only function is to link earth to heaven, the visible to the invisible. Doing so, they act as a gate between the secular and the sacred.

The project tends to put those objects from different cultures and locations in relation between each others. Never present in the pictures, but lying behind every one of them, is the human. It is the underlying link, a sign of shared hummanity .
