Members of the Messiah Miracle Worship Center, a small church in Senoia, Georgia, perform music together. Photographer Ben Helton is from Senoia and was drawn to the sounds coming from behind the church's walls. He was welcomed in by the congregation, and he visited 19 times over several months.
An evangelist jumps for joy during a service. Helton shot photos with a handheld flash, creating images full of hard light, shadows and layers.
Helton found a strong family dynamic in the church, which he said isn't much larger than a two-car garage.
