Picture of Jesus Christ is beautiful, astonishing and touching! That is first impression when I saw the picture of Jesus by Michael Belk. The photograph “Journey with the Messiah” has touching many people heart.
Jesus always found the way to entry our heart. And now He comes with Michael Belk lens. The profile and photograph sample are taken from official website www.thejourneysproject.com.
Michael Belk is famous fashion photographer for some outstanding client likes Vogue, Elle, GQ, Vanity Fair, Nautica, J. Crew, Talbot’s and Russell Athletic Corporation. He own fashion advertising agency: Michael Belk & Company.
Working 30 years in fashion and clothing industries has made his life surrounding by beautiful model and artist, travelling around the world, and got high income and financially stable. But he feels something empty in his life and career. He would like to make beautiful Jesus picture which touch his heart.
Jesus Touch his Life
In the age of 42, Michael says that his life was defined by “great excitement, huge success, but very little substance.” His life is so empty, crushed, burned, and darkness. I the time of faith crisis, he got Visitor in his room and recall “the absolute presence of God”.
“More of your way or would you like to try Mine?” the Visitor asked. Michael Belk decides to try “God’s way”. The change of his life and journey to know Lord Savior had begun. He is in the way to create Jesus picture in modern times.
Journeys with the Messiah - Project
The “Journeys with the Messiah” become a project in 2008. The idea was to produce a collection of beautiful photographs that would depict messages of Jesus by picture and show His relevance in our modern world.
There is beautiful Jesus picture who help family, businessmen, rich lady, young people, etc. All photograph was taken in brown and black colors. Vivid and inspired!
The photograph first published in late 2009 consists of 33 pictures. The photo arrange in a book, poster, and DVD. For complete pictures and art work of Michael Belk, please visit: http://journeyswiththemessiah.org or www.thejourneysproject.com.

As I mention above, the story and Jesus pictures are taken from official website. I wrote this article because that photograph has touched me deeply and gave new insight about Jesus in our modern times.
I can see clearlythe Our Lord Savior in today time; through the pictures art work of Michael Belk. I wrote this simple article in purpose to share joy that illuminate my mind.

If you look at the pictures aside, you can see Jesus invite poor people and common to joint His Great Dinner. Some of established person watch the vivid conversation of Jesus and His guest.

Absolutely incredible work! I'd never heard of this guy before! He's clearly has a way of showing Christ in the modern everyday journeys of life. We might do well to see Him in our midst in the fashion at all.
I assume (maybe incorrectly), that his work is available for purchase. I have been wondering who would be taking Thomas Kincades 'place'. I think I've found my answer! Thanks for the information and hub!

I also just reread your hub. You have an exquisite humility.
