The End of Religion?

In 1961, 96 per cent of Australians identified themselves as Christians. Today, that number has decreased to 61 per cent.

In 2011, the census data revealed that the ‘no religion’ category is the largest religious grouping in 5 out of 8 states and territories.

Despite having more churches than schools, young Australians are failing to actively engaging with religion, leaving churches empty, and dominated by the elderly.

Are we seeing the end of religion?

Below I have explored this concept through the visual medium of photography.
