“This image is from my series “Faith Soul Search”, which is based on meditative act, a personal journey within, shaped by a series of external stimuli (religious, cultural, political) and, at times, even nostalgic childhood images embedded in memory. The imagery symbolizes how spiritual-
ity is intrinsically ingrained in every child that comes into this world.”
