For me this is a very kitsch representation of the "Holy Family" and when I saw it for the first time I exclaim: "It's a fair!!" I was very critical about this way of representation sacred images because people (me too) may misinterpret its real meaning. But then I think that if you isolate the "Holy Family" from its originally context, it acquire a great importance, the trascendental dimension. Like a Russian icon, the display is not important: the object that you represent is really a sacred image.

This is a non descriptive photography. I took only one photo of this "Holy Family" in a dark room; then I stitched the photo on a black background.
