Portfolio: The Anti-Religious Alphabet

From a portfolio of 27 prints.

This image juxtaposes stragglers going to church, seduced by the holy relics of martyrs, with the massive numbers of workers heading into a factory. The powerful factory whistle blasts its call to labor; the fractured and broken lines around the church bell suggest the weakness of both its sound and effectiveness in an industrialized society.
