Spending time with young people in religious communities and on spiritual retreats throughout Ireland, Voronov found that all those photographed shared permutations of one core conviction. This was a belief in the existence of two worlds. Our material world which we all perceive as well as a second, mysterious spiritual world.
The idea of photographing a link between these worlds, a nexus where the veil between them is thinnest, became a subject of fascination. Unpredictable and almost imperceptible but to those dedicated to their pursuit, such links take the form of fleeting revelations, subtle rifts in reality, and a feeling of connection to the divine. In these instances, the banal gives way to the sublime. They are metaphysical decisive moments.
