“The beauty of Ash Wednesday is
that very ordinary people,
heading to the train, to work or school,
exercise the simple act of wearing their faith
for this one day a year.
A very old ritual against the backdrop of
Greg Miller, photographer,
who for the past 15 years has been photographing people in midtown Manhattan,
who have just received ashes at nearby churches.
Visit Greg’s website – Dark Cloth Diaries, to see more
of his very moving images from his annual collection – Unto Dust.
Greg’s photo is from NPR article.
