Christopher Roche talks about his adventures photographing different faith traditions around the world.

From the Buddhist monasteries of Tibet to the rock hewn churches of Ethiopia; from the Sufi shrines of Iran to the burning Ghats of India and the animists of the Peruvian Andes, his photographs reveal epic scenes with tens of thousands of pilgrims alongside private moments of prayer and meditation. He shares with us the stories behind the images which include bathing in the world's most polluted river and being whipped at an altitude of over 5,500 meters.
