Mumbai born, Brooklyn based photographer Manjari Sharma is on a mission to create contemporary photographs of ancient spiritual figures. The complex and colorful visual stylings, normally rendered from the depths of mythology and the imagination, take unprecedented physical shape before Sharma’s camera lens. Her photographs, composed from scratch, measure at a whopping six feet high, their grand stature ensuring that each and every detail of the iconic figures have room to flourish in her reverent recreations.
Sharma photographed exact replications of six holy figures, including Maa Laxmi, Lord Vishnu, Maa Durga and Lord Shiva. You can learn more about Sharma and her project here.
