Landscape photographer Ken Duncan’s Good Friday address focused on his photography Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ.
A MAN hired to photograph stills from The Passion of the Christ is in Launceston as part of the city’s Easter Community Festival.
Ken Duncan spoke at the Tramsheds at Inveresk yesterday about his experiences with the film and its impact on his faith.
Duncan, a friend of director Mel Gibson since the pair were at school, said his involvement with The Passion of the Christ confirmed his religious beliefs.
He likened working alongside Jim Caviezel, who played Jesus in the film, to being in a “3D confessional”.
“It was such a graphic reminder of what Jesus went through,” Duncan said.
“I was a Christian before the film but when I saw that I thought ‘there’s no way that didn’t happen’. When you look at the evidence, you can’t just write it off.”
Organising committee member Andrew Corbett said that the festival would tap into the Easter tradition of inspiring great art, music and thought. Duncan is one of three key figures at the festival, with law professor Tim McCormack representing “thought” and astronomer Professor Fred Watson, who put himself through university by playing the guitar, representing music.
The Launceston Easter Community Festival runs until Monday at the Albert Hall, QVMAG Inveresk, the Tramsheds and St John’s Church. For details visit 梧桐夜网launceston.org419论坛 or the Launceston Easter Community Festival Facebook page.
