Durham Cathedral

The next project:

For almost a millennium, Durham Cathedral has stood overlooking the River Wear in the Northeast of England, standing witness to the Christian faith and a thousand years of history. On one end rests the Venerable Bede, England’s first historian, and on the other lies St. Cuthbert, Bishop of Lindisfarne. In between is a holy place built by hand and consecrated by the prayers of generations. Today the cathedral community includes hundreds of volunteers, clergy, choristers, musicians, artisans, parishioners, and staff, as well as the approximately 700,000 people who visit from around the world every year. For a year, Kelly lived in Durham with her family in order to immerse herself in the cathedral and to document a year in its life. She’s now back in the US and working on completing the manuscript of a book about being a stranger in a magical place. You can read the first published piece based on this material here.
