Bertie’s Bibles

This is a series of photographs that I took of old Bibles, most of them given to me by my grandmother. We called her Bertie. The first image featured here, placed in the International Photography Competition at the San Diego County Fair. It is my best selling photograph. Most of these Bibles have been loved and cherished since the 1800’s, thus their distressed condition. I photographed these in color and converted them to a monochrome sepia, which highlights the focus of the books.
