parliament of world religions

In light of new evidence that 2015 will likely be the hottest year ever recorded, Muslim, Hindu, Christian, Jewish, Buddhist and other religious leaders joined together at the Parliament of World Religions pledging faith-based action to combat climate change. The event took place in Salt Lake City, and brought together over 8,000 people from scores of faiths and nations.
Inspired by the gorgeous portrait series by Muslim photographer Ridwan Adhami from the most recent ISNA Conference, I set out to capture pictures of some of the diverse and colorful characters who attended this inaugural World Congress of Religions.
