“My method when I am in with these guys is to take everything they tell me at face value. I’m there as a photographic apostle,” says Norwegian photojournalist Jonas Bendiksen, who has been traveling around the world to meet seven people who believe themselves to be the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. The result is Bendiksen’s new book The Last Testament  (co-published by Aperture and GOST). “I’ve tried to produce images that illustrate the human longing for faith,” Bendiksen tells the British Journal of Photography.
