Stock Image - Actual Cover May Vary

Steven Rothfeld has traveled the world collecting images of beauty, culture, and passion with his camera. In 2004, he teamed up with bestselling author Frances Mayes, providing a wealth of glorious photographs for Bringing Tuscany Home, Mayess intimate and vibrant look at Tuscan life. Now, Rothfeld turns his lens on a fascinating aspect of Italian culture, the age-old, popular art of building shrines in honor of the Virgin Mary and other saints. Created by average people as an expression of religious devotion, the shrines appear along ordinary roads, in the fields of farmers, and in the yards of simple cottages and homes. In SHRINES, Rothfelds full-color photographs of these ubiquitous, delicately crafted structures form a spiritual journey, bringing to life an ancient religious tradition that continues to thrive today. With a charming introduction by Frances Mayes, this visual tour of the surprising and graceful ways the divine touches and enriches everyday lives is the perfect gift for admirers of sacred art, history buffs, the millions of Americans who travel to Italy, and everyone who dreams of going there.
