About the Photographer
Sacred Festivals (MQ Publications, London) - Book Club Association “Choice”

Sacred Festivals Book Description:
Author and photographer Jeremy Hunter leads the reader on an inspired journey across the world to record extraordinary festivals, rituals and celebrations in more than 45 countries across 5 continents. Against a backdrop of some of the world's most stunning landscapes, the human aspect of these extraordinary ceremonies is spectacularly captured and highlights the world’s wide diversity of cultures. Each photograph captures for posterity many wonderful ceremonies that have remained unchanged for hundreds (and in some cases thousands) of years - allowed to remain so, forgotten or passed by, unnoticed by the world at large. Sadly these culturally and spiritually rich occasions are in danger of dying out.
