Richard Lewer's artistic output over the years reveals his continuous attraction to extremes of behaviour, beliefs and experience in the context of everyday lives. In God Created Me In His Own Image, Lewer documents subjects whose practices or experience rely on systems of belief - an exorcist, mystic, nungkare (healer) and rainmaker, and the certified miracle of the weeping Madonna at the Holy Family House of Prayer in Rockingham in Perth.
