Take the Christian anthem Via Dolorosa made popular by Sandi Patti in the late 80’s, this dude in drag dressed Dana Carvey Church lady-style singing with the tune in eerily good falsetto, and put his lifeless, singing body in front of an alter with…  I think I may have said too much.  Some of the photos have an Eggleston quality to them- great Americana color photography depicting the (mostly white) common man/woman/family.  Miner adds extra irony and humor in his photos and video installtions, and with this show Easter for the Birds, a re-born Christian twist.  Good Goddamn.
