Whether it be to Mecca, Bud Guyah, the river Ganges or Jerusalem, the concept of pilgrimage is synonymous with the world’s major religions. The project Universal Journey documents a 6,500-mile walk across the United States through Europe and the Middle East to Jerusalem and Bethlehem. The journey contained peoples of many faiths – celebrating their strength through their diversity of beliefs. I walked as a core group member of that journey, shooting thousands of photographs along the way to document their travels.
