The weight of my prayers for you


Digital Art

Artist Statement

The weight of my prayers for you is a series of contemporary hybrid photography. It was made from a self-portrait printed on couche paper and 'painted' with candle wax to simbolize how heavy are my prayers for my late mother.

How it fits into contest

I put on the full armor of God, my prayers and hopes, so that I can take my stand against the devil’s schemes.


I did the project all on my own.
