Faith and, more importantly, how it changes and affects the way people are, both inside as well as to each other, has determined massive swaths of our collective history. These days, with faith becoming an increasingly polarising force, from rigid and selective interpretation of the far right to the militant religious extremism ebbing and flowing across the world, it is in some of the more remote, more out-of-the-way places that we can still see remnants of how faith and religion were, perhaps, meant to be.
