Photographer Transforms Hindu Deities into Contemporary Images

Manjari Sharma's photographs of ancient mystical and spiritual Hindu figures are stunning. You can see some of them here at the Huffington Post.  Some are very large and you will get a sense of this magnitude when you scroll through the images at the Post.  You can view them as a slideshow here, if you click on the show's title, Darshan, on the left sidebar.

Sharma, born in India, now works and lives in Brooklyn, NY, where she is exhibiting her photographs  at Champ Art beginning toady.

The Huffington Post characterizes Sharma's art like this: "the painstaking progress, from casting to costume design to the final digital touches, bridges the space between art and spirituality, the present and the imagined."
