The Faithful explores the life of Vera, an Orthodox Christian nun whose portrait is a central and powerful work in the Ex-Voto series. Over several years, Alys Tomlinson explored Christian pilgrimage sites in Europe, photographing pilgrims, landscapes and objects and markers left behind at these sacred sites. Images from Ex-Voto provide a broad background to The Faithful. The exhibition of both photographs and film gives a deeper context to the portrayal of living a life of faith. The Faithful combines portraits of the nuns at the convent, photographs taken at Christian pilgrimage sites in France, Ireland, and Poland; and stills and moving image from the series Vera.
