Chris Rainier, a documentary photographer and National Geographic explorer, has been devoted to exploring and understanding the sacred. What does sacred mean for different people and different cultures from all corners of the globe? Is it a landscape, a nature’s wonder, a man-made building, or a language?
Searching for answers to these questions, Chris spent the last forty years traveling across all seven continents and photographing what different people see as sacred. He collected it all in his book Sacred: In Search of Meaning, and today we share with you some of the magnificent photos he took on his long journey.
