New Gods

Male preacher with his phone worshiped by his followers.

2020

The influencer, the blogger, the vlogger, the tweeter and the status updater. Holding their book of knowledge, they stand on platforms, all offering advice, opinions, news, information, but do we stop in the street and listen as the preacher or protester shouts their message at us? Do we jostle and bustle to listen, do we bow to the gods? We can make our own way, find our own path, reach up and grasp that dusty book from the shelf and seek out our own truths? But we can turn away, and truly see and really know for ourselves.
