Young Nun in Prayer

It has been said that we are never more ourselves than when we are deep in prayer. Tusita Studio provides the viewer of a glimpse of this deeply human moment of divine intercession. 

Topics: Sacred Spaces

Skilled use of shallow depth of field in this Tusita Studio image brings immediate attention to the deep concentration on the face of the young nun, letting us follow the line of her nose to the downturn of her mouth so that we can imagine the flow of breath at the heart of all prayer and meditation.
