A Testimony of Serpent Handling

Deluxe Edition

A Testimony of Serpent Handling


A Testimony of Serpent Handling is a limited, numbered edition, available as a Master or Deluxe Edition. This Deluxe Edition of 100 copies includes a Super 8 film shot by Hunter and a signed, numbered, limted edition silver gelatin photograph by Hunter, presented in a slipcase.

This work by documentary photographer Hunter Barnes provides a unique and intimate portrait of a small community of serpent handlers in West Virginia. This devout way of life finds its roots in the King James Bible, with followers believing that the literal interpretation of passages of Mark and Luke regarding handling poisonous serpents and drinking lethal poisons is central to their faith. With lyrical reflections accompanying his photographs, Hunter’s sensitive study brings beauty and understanding to a perhaps misunderstood practice. In recording this slowly diminishing community, this photographic collection also provides a valuable service to the cultural history of the United States.
