Getting the Picture
The growing role of the evangelical right in the American political landscape has raised many questions from the rest of us. A culture, faith and politic that are at great odds with much of the majority have risen to power and entered the mainstream in recent years, as depicted most profoundly by the two-term presidency of George W. Bush.
In an effort to better understand the roots of these evangelical power brokers, photographer Jona Frank documented life at the Evangelical Christian Patrick Henry College in Virginia, an institution known for breeding young evangelicals for political careers. Frank compiles her findings in the book, Right: Portraits from the Evangelical Ivy League, lending insight into this little-known, yet highly influential institution.
Frank will be in New York City on October 17 for a book signing [shopping.icp.org].
