Have you heard about Chris Johnson’s book project, “A Better Life: 100 Atheists Speak Out on Joy and Meaning in a World Without God”? Photographer Chris Johnson has been traveling around the world, photographing atheists and talking with us about how our atheism shapes the meaning of our lives, for a hardcover full-color coffee table book featuring photographs and quotes from each subject. Says Johnson: “From the college professor, to the farmer in Kansas, I want to document my fellow atheists and ask them what brings meaning and joy to their lives. The goal of the book is to visually capture the diversity of non-believers and the ways they maintain a better life, not in spite of their atheism, but because of it.”
A couple of months ago he came to San Francisco to talk with me and take my photo. He’s doing videos of interviews with the book’s subjects as well as photographs — and here’s mine.
There’s lots of other videos in this series as well, many of which are awesome. Enjoy!
