The sudden revelation of a powerful religious calling
was an entirely unexpected event in the life of a college student named
Lauren. But when it became clear to her that she had a spiritual
vocation, she made the exceptional decision to dedicate her life to God.
Drawing upon many visits to the cloistered religious community of
Dominican nuns in Summit, New Jersey, photographer Toni Greaves has
created a luminous body of work that follows the transformative journey
by which Lauren became Sister Maria Teresa of the Sacred Heart.
Presented in an exquisite photobook volume featuring a luxe cloth case,
these meditative photographs capture the radical joy of a life dedicated
unequivocally to love.
Subjects include the following:
- Dominican sisters
- New Jersey
- Monastic and religious life of women
- Monastery of Our Lady of the Rosary
