About-

This book of photographs, accompanied by poetic insights, shed light on our search for meaning in the contemporary world. The backdrop is exile, that ancient and modern reality that afflicts many in our search for justice and compassion.



Whether our leave-taking is geographic, political, cultural or religious, exile is our plight. The prophetic, our difficult guide, is also our companion.



Those in exile find hope in what the author calls the New Diaspora, the community whose exiles gather and find new life. The New Diaspora seeks a vision of beauty amid the ruins, hope among despair.



Walking the beach of Cape Canaveral and traveling to troubled spots around the world, the author’s images of the New Diaspora are startling. We are encouraged to reflect on our own journey and join our prophetic exile with others around the world.
