Reel Art Press_A Testimony of Serpent Handling

Editorial Design

American photographer Hunter Barnes documents groups of people, whom he considers to be misrepresented in modern society. One such group is a small community of Serpent Handlers in West Virginia.

The images were accompanied by the photographer’s lyrical reflections which were typeset using a combination of a modern serif typeface and authentic wood block characters from the turn of the 19th century – a particularly significant period in the history of serpent handling.
