last year when i found out about the photography of mark mabry, i immediately fell in love. for those who don't know, mark recreates authentic meridian-of-time scenes using both full color and black and white photographs. he has completed two beautiful projects, his first being the "reflections of christ" and the newest, "another testament." each project includes a book of beautiful scenes of the life of christ and then a dvd that shows mark as he helps to recreate the savior's most awe-inspiring moments as if you were there witnessing the events first hand.
the dvd is truly amazing, we own the first one; reflections of christ. first of all, it's so interesting to see images of all the scriptural stories we read about, with real life people; it creates such a different impression. the photos are absolutely stunning. on top of that, hearing powerful testimony from mark and his life-changing experiences and many others who participated is just amazing. (i can't even imagine what it would be like to portray the role of christ). you can view a slideshow of reflections of christ or meet mark in a little clip here. his newest project - the new testament, i just watched tonight and also loved. the links alone are a must. i mean, i don't want to sound like i'm begging... however i don't really think you could spend 5 or 10 minutes in a better way. i think these books or dvd's (that are both at deseret book and even walmart) are perfect christmas gifts and a fabulous addition for the season.
