No Room for Divinity / by John Javellana

Cutud 2009
Third time’s definitely not a charm. Was back in Cutud earlier today, it has always been a barometer of the knowledge I have acquired ever since I started my photography. It’s a hellish coverage but what’s more sickening than the searing heat that makes you ask the question what the fuck is your very being doing in such a Hadean environment is the fact that holiness is made into one big circus-like commodity wherein everybody wants to be the star - the penitents, the flagellants, the VIPs, even the media. No more room for authentic divinity. None at all.
