The Monastics – Secluded Expression of One’s Self

The word Monastic derives from the word monastery or its characteristic and lifestyle of someone who gives up all earthly possessions in order to pursue a life of religious piety, seclusion, very disciplined and contemplative. This photo-shoot takes on that idea and expands it into a more viable expression of the individual, adding to it the abstract, grace and color. At the same time it offers a rare opportunity where a way of life, chosen by so many throughout the centuries, is transformed into a modern almost surreal contemplative expression. The dramatic facial expressions or lack thereof, feeds onto a feeling of loneliness and strong psychosis. Viewed in such a way, it is visually a breathtaking work of art.
