Holy men of India

Epic beauty.

“Canadian commercial photographer, director and publisher Joey L. has had a lifelong interest in endangered cultures and traditions and rare religious practices. He recently enriched his stunning “Holy Men” portrait series by travelling to the Indian city of Varanasi (one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world) for the third time and capturing divine portraits of religious ascetics who have long ago abandoned their “civilized” lives.”
