Stories and Photographs of a Global Faith
I ended up at the LDS Church History Museum in downtown Salt Lake City by mistake. My assignment was actually in a diff building two blocks away. It was a lucky mistake, since I stumbled upon church photographers Leslie Nilsson and Cody Bell’s exhibit of photographs.
The show is up through the end of 2018. The prints are beautiful. There are some videos you can watch as well, which talk about the approach these two are going for – documentary style photographs, capturing the subjects as they are. Here are a bunch of links:
The Light & Life exhibit at the LDS Church History Museum gives a glimpse of Mormons unplugged, from all over the world. The photographers say this is what is possible when photos are unstaged: we see people in all their messiness and beauty.
Two new art exhibitions featuring the talents of several members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are open to the public at the Church History Museum in Salt Lake City.
After years of traveling the world on assignment, Church photographers Leslie Nilsson and Cody Bell have compiled some of their favorite shots to promote unity, love and a better picture of Church members around the world.
“This show is a show of hope and a faith,” said Cody Bell, staff photographer of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Thirty-four large-scale images taken by Bell and fellow staff photographer Leslie Nilsson are on display at the Church History Museum in Salt Lake City until January 2019.
