Publisher Note

In the course of a six-month tour of the southwest of the United States, Swiss photographer Julian Salinas concentrated on the issue of how 'freedom' and 'commandment' can be interpreted in our time. In ten picture chapters he examines the traces left by these two major authorities to which the American people committed themselves a long time ago. On his journey he encountered not only numerous free churches and hedonistic survivor-types, but also relics of a state that once promised its inhabitants heaven on earth and is now scarcely able to fulfil its promise.This is a subtle, multifaceted work that presents new angles of vision and spurs the reader to reflect – not just on America, and not just on faith.
