Nearly two months ago I wrote about a very personal photo project, the closing of Blue Cloud Abbey. I made several visits to the Abbey. Two events were especially significant. On August 3rd, members of neighboring religious communities and church leaders from other states participated in a special mass. On August 5th, a closing mass was open to the public. I attended both events to document them.
The monks are in the process of moving to other monasteries. The property is up for sale.
My photos of the closing have been published by Blurb in ebook and printed formats.
