    After checking the group photo on your web site, the term "pretty" seems a bit of a stretch.

    (Bump!)

    Just a reminder about the Texas Church Project and the two upcoming events:

    First, The weekend of May 5-6 (next week :o ), there will be a segment on the project with all five of us on the TV show: "Texas Country Reporter". Check your local listings in Texas and/or check the website for specifics.

    http://www.texascountryreporter.com/.../show_time.htm

    Nationally try the following cable & satellite providers:
    DIRECTV channel #379
    Mediacom channel #78
    DISH Network channel #9409

    Set those VCRs and DVRs!

    And second, our first gallery exhibition opens at the University of North Texas in Denton the following Monday, May 7, with a reception on Tuesday, May 8. The exhibition will be up May 7 - 24!.

    http://www.unt.edu/union/galleryexhibits.htm

    http://www.unt.edu/union/artiststatements.htm

    And, of course, our own website is: www.texaschurchproj.com. New stuff in the gallery!

    Thanks to all the apuggers who've offered support and encouragement. This project may not have happened (at least as it has) if the 5 of us had not all met via APUG.

    If you're in the DFW/Denton area, come on by!

    Thanks for the update David. I've watched your site for sometime now, your pictures bring back lots of memories when I visited Texas as a child. I haven't been there in many years, but always had a fondness for it.

    Just saw it!

    Dianna and I just watched it. I taped it too, but my tape has tracking problems. I think my vcr is about ready to (or has already) given up the ghost. I'll have to look at my tape on a good quality VCR and see if it can overcome the tracking problems so I can make a couple of copies.

    Wonderful wonderful show. I would have liked to have seen the ten-part miniseries version!

    Bob Phillips sure has a knack for drawing good talk out of people. That's just the kind of conversation I would like to have when we meet for our infrequent get togethers.

    I especially liked the part during Lee's interview when he characterized digital photography as "The devil's work". We laughed and cheered so loud our five-year old didn't know what was the heck was going on.

    The opening scene when the church doors open, sunlight pours in and Mike, Matthew, Lee, David and Jeremy walk in with cameras and tripods slung over their shoulders was something straight out of a spaghetti western.

    Sure would be nice if apug could get licensed to show that segment online -- would answer so many "Why do you do that?" questions by newbies, or at least the "What do you get out of that?"

    Personally, I guess I'd always thought "The Church Guys" shot churches because of their interesting architecture, but I was missing the point. Luckily, you guys poignantly spelled it all out, how the Czech, Norwegian, German and other surnames of the infants being baptized were the same as the parishioners who sat the pews, handmade the stained glass, and who continue to rest in the cemeteries. Generations of immigrants and decendants of immigrants have shared common threads of the cycle of life in these structures, and every square inch of these churches is charged with the experiences of countless families.

    The way their work and this segment most personally connected with me was that I've got a particular fondness for trying to record disappearing worlds, and with more and more churches polarizing toward either the megala-Six-Flags-Over-Jesus model or, on the other end, the stripmall storefront church, the generational handcrafted place of worship seems to be slipping from our grasp.

    It was a good-sized segment, too. Since Texas Country Reporter had three segments, and he crowded the first two into the first half of the show, so the Texas Church Project segment filled the last fifteen minutes or so. As the segment drew to a close, though, I was left wondering something.

    Do you guys give prints to the communities whose churches you photograph, or maybe even duplicate prints so one could be stored with the church and one stored elsewhere in case something happens to the church?

    I can envision some ten year old child seeing a high-quality hand-crafted photographic print for the first time and being influenced to spend her life behind the viewfinder, documenting the world around her.

    The urgency of photographing the churches (not just be buildings, but the manifestations of their culture) before they fade away brings to mind a passage from the Nicene Creed I recited over and over again in parochial school as a child: "[FONT=Arial]We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church[/FONT]". Through your images, these catholic (small "c", comprehensive, universal) churches will always have apostles to defend their memory.
