'Ex-Voto' A Photographic Exhibition by Alys Tomlinson

Alys Tomlinson is an award-winning editorial and fine art photographer based in London.


Named Sony World Photographer of the Year 2018 Alys Tomlinson's work has been exhibited in the UK, France, Ireland and the USA. The 'Ex-Voto' exhibition is a study of offerings of religious devotion found at Christian pilgrimage sites across the world.

Known as 'Ex-Voto' these offerings can take many forms - a handwritten note neatly folded and hidden in a crevice, crosses etched onto stone or ribbon carefully wrapped around piles of twigs.

The photographs have been taken at the pilgrimage sites of Lourdes, France, Ballyvourney, Ireland and Grabarka, Poland.
