Sean Meyers: 'The Faith Experience' photo exhibit

Center for Faith & the Arts will be sponsoring an exhibit of photography by Sean Meyers in the Parish Hall of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 131 W. Council St. The opening reception for “The Faith Experience” is 6-8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 5.
An accomplished and experienced photojournalist, Meyers says he thrives on “documenting and capturing these moments that define who we are as Americans, as southerners and as human beings.
“With this project, I wanted not only to create awareness of the wide variety of religious/spiritual beliefs that permeate our geographical region; but also, in creating this awareness, to foster an interest in and tolerance of religious/spiritual diversity. To this end, I documented people and services associated with a variety of denominations, from the established and traditional to the emerging and progressive.”
Meyers says he hopes the project will allow others to better understand the rich religious and spiritual communities in our region.
Since earning his photojournalism degree in 1991 from the University of Florida’s School of Journalism, Meyers has worked for daily newspapers from Florida to Ohio to Missouri. He currently resides in Salisbury where he continues to expand the freelance photography business that he started in Texas in 1998. He has also served as a visiting instructor of basic, intermediate, and photojournalistic photography at Texas Tech University and digital photography adjunct at Catawba College.
His work has won numerous local and regional awards, and has been honored by prestigious national organizations, including the National Press Photographers Association and the Associated Press.
Meyers lives in Salisbury with his wife Elizabeth Homan and daughter Emmaline.
