Little Theophanies

Skip McKinstry’s work is based primarily in photography. He often uses digital manipulation to achieve particular effects. Describing his work, McKinstry says, “The universe ‘speaks,’ praising God and making God known. Thus, the things I see around me already speak to me of the glory of God. Working through the images, editing, manipulating, and combining them is a sort of conversational process for me, perhaps better described as prayer.”

“Regardless of the medium, I believe that art, like people, provides little theophanies—unique, reflected light (and refracted light) insights into the nature of God.” —Skip McKinstry
