Maybe....I was invited to document a Pentecostal Christian revival at a rural Georgia church. This in not my background but I enjoy documenting how people interact with their religion and concept of a divine.
This lady had just had "hands laid on her" which is believed to invoke the holy spirit. The lady lost touch with reality, spoke in tongues then collapsed.
For her and the other participants this is an extraordinary event to be sought after.
I was there and know the larger context but the picture is no doubt disturbing on its own.
I have posted some more on my fliker...
