The Angels in Ourselves

In a world where it’s easy to focus on the things that divid and separate us, photographer Emmanuel Santos has tried to emphasize some of what we share in common. The Angels revealed in his collection of photos inspire thought, feeling, imagination and make you want to believe in things you can’t see.

Emmanuel Santos’ latest work, THE PASSING OF LIGHT, Book of Illuminations, consists of photos of 72 angels that represent the 72 different names of God, as mentioned in the Book of Exodus of the Old Testament.
