Neil DaCosta’s MORMONS Go Viral

What’s the buzz on all your favorite feeds? Neil DaCosta, the photographer behind Astronaut Suicides, released his latest controversial project yesterday, and received over a half million hits in the first 24 hours. The title is Mormon Missionary Positions, and you should probably check it out for yourself. What’s your position?


From Coolhunting’s Karen Day:

“While the first amendment clearly states that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion,” many Americans are concerned about the potential change in White House administration this November, and what it would mean for marriage equality. As a Mormon, Mitt Romney is openly against same-sex marriage and remains “committed to making sure that we reinforce the institution of marriage in this country by insisting that all states have a right to have marriage as defined as between a man and a woman.”

“From the classic missionary position to drawing the bow, the provocative photographs are as artistically entertaining as they are seemingly politically charged.”
