Very often, believing is seeing—making felt connections with the seen and the unseen through images and material objects.
As Santa Clara University students explore the local religious landscape, they’ve been making photos of sites, communities and practitioners that reveal the ambiance, moods, and sensibilties of religion and spirituality as it is lived today.

The galleries below are a sampling of the imagistic fruits of their sojourns. Join them by entering the sites below.
