Darshan means a falling of light, the insight of a space. It is the Hindi word for philosophy that comes from its Sanskrit root drish, which means to see or to view. This ongoing body of work is about presenting a mystical experience of spaces that is connected by light. These photographs encourage us to imagine a possibility of something magical in the world. Many of the photographs for this series are made around  sites of spiritual significance, including shrines, bodies of water, and sacred forests. All these places hold a history of ritual. For centuries, people have been coming to these spaces to practice their beliefs. They come here to seek something bigger than themselves. This body of work is not about the specific religiosity of a place, instead it uses these sacred sanctuaries as containers, as points of encounter.
