"Merciful Mother"

Erik Randall Lindberg
Tucson, Arizona


This photograph was taken at the San Xavier Mission in Tucson Arizona. I a secondary building on the site that was once the mortuary chapel, now contains many statuettes and candles. The resulting space is an overwhelmingly spiritual experience. In the photograph, Mary is looking downwards to the many beneath her seemingly offering her loving embrace. This embrace is also extended towards jesus, just below her on the cross. Despite the classic portrayal of Saint Mary, it is the outside factors in this photograph that really humanize her in this picture.  Rather than the seemingly cold mother she often that she often resembles, Mary appears as a guiding figure, offering herself to those in need.
