Newtown Mission Church, Sydney Australia


There's something magical about being a photographer and a child like adventure that so is addictive. Someone suggested that photographers have an addiction to photos and videos or simply visual beauties.

In one of my self guided photo-walk, I discovered Newtown Mission Church and the incredible art work of Kon Parris. A photo-walk is a self discovery as well as feeding the addiction. The Koori people of Australia have a "walkabout" where by wondering through the great outback and visiting ancestry sites. A self discovery and adventure before granted adulthood. 

Kon Parris was inspired when looking up at the church ceiling and imagine something up there similar to the Sistine Chapel. He envision if a big murals were up there. And with the church approval, it took Kon 7 years to completed the Revelation Ceiling you see right now in the church.

It is in need of maintenance. Your support is appreciated and the purpose of me sharing this gift from Kon Parris. It is a master piece  that future generations can still enjoy, and the important messages in it. It is way better to see it in person and I hope my photo can do it justice.

You can visit the Newtown Mission Church to have a look yourself. They are photographer friendly place and very accommodating. Please donate some thing back in return. Either monetary or photos you have taken. They have visiting hours just to see the masterpiece from Kon Parris so get in touch with the church.
