Photographs of an old Catholic church and school in Tontitown, Arkansas. Tontitown was settled by Italian settlers in 1898. The church is historically significant. It was constructed by the parishioners. Some of the parishioners still have in their possession the original molds used to fashion the hand made blocks. For years the decision to destroy or restore the landmarks was steeped in debate as the buildings continued to deteriorate. In December of 2017 the church was destroyed except for the bell tower. This series is my use of landscape as metaphor for the crisis in the Vatican and the Church.
