This is a wonderful expression of faith, in a way that respects their beliefs, and captures the essence of the life of worship that they have chosen. It does have a peaceful and quite feel to the whole gallery, almost as if you are there in the hushed tones of the chapel. You really captured a lot of emotion with these images. Voted.
very spiritual. Voted!
I can feel the solemn ambiance through your artistic images. GMV!
This is a stunningly beautiful gallery, so rich, emotive and thought inspiring. Thank you for showing us a bit of the world that most of us will never have the chance to see, and for showing it through such artistic eyes.

All together, this series has a real power to it. And, of course they can't really be seperated, each image is an incredible piece of photography. V

Cum angelis et pueris,
This gallery just brought to my mind the song "Sadness" by Enigma....Amazing gallery!!! So much emotion!!! V!
a gallery in the sense of respect , in a sense of sacred.
Thanks for this gallery. I like what Marcos wrote 2 days ago and I could not express it better. I wish one day I could produce such delicate work about such a theme.
Very nice gallery. So quiet... v.
Nowadays it seems to be very fashionable to berate religion and the souls who dedicate their lifes to it. Your amazing images, however, bear powerful witness to the underlying truths that those who senselessly insult and attack would prefer remain hidden. For that courage and vision I congratulate and thank you. Voted!
A touching series! Well done! V
congrats. excellent gallery. it is certainly a difficult subject and you have very well captured the atmosphere of the place. V
A wonderful creation of holy, pious and the record of the cleanse of human heart ! A Big Vote !
I second what Manny and Phil said. They are all good but I particularly like 16. A big V of course!
This is one of the most expressive galleries I've seen on the subject of faith. You use abstraction to eloquently define the essence of this human value, Aloha. No two images say the same thing. You even add a touch of incongruity to the sequence by including an image of the subject (nuns) using photography as part of their lives. Thank you for this magnificent series -- it goes far beyond anything you've done to date in terms of photojournalism, and deonstrates your emerging versatility as a photography. Manny is right -- you continue to evolve as a visual story teller.

Very powerful. I really like 4, 13 and 16. The tones are just appropriate and the story they tell are rich. You have evolved once again. V
