Beautiful photographs by journalist Jeremy Hunter are to be exhibited in London today in celebration of religious diversity.

From pagan horn dancers in Staffordshire to Dzogchen monks in Lincolnshire and Zoroastrianism in London, the photographs capture an eclectic array of colourful traditions from around the UK and the rest of the world.

The exhibition forms part of the government’s inter-faith week, endorsed by Mayor of London Boris Johnson, which aims to promote good relations between religions and provide increasing understanding between faiths and wider society.

“The exhibition provides visitors with the opportunity to journey, explore, learn and – most importantly – better understand our world and its people,” says Hunter.

The exhibit, Let’s Celebrate 365, opens at London’s City Hall from today and will run until the 30th November. Entry is free.
