A collection of photographs documenting sacred sites around South Africa.

"This remarkable book is a catalog of ritual practices in place, yet it imagines a religiosity not fettered by territory or culture. Weinberg is a sage among visual storytellers. By gently following the paths of people in prayer, he gives testimony to the value of land beyond property and production, and to the spiritual power of photography itself." Staffan Löfving, Karlstad University, Sweden
