In collaboration with Ori Media, I embarked on a project to recreate ancient religious iconography of the Virgin Mary using modern-day photography. As a Theologian and Mariologist, it was important to me that we recreate the historical Mary (she was a thirteen year-old Middle-Eastern girl) as well as maintain the symbolic elements of her life as portrayed in ancient Marian art.
