The monk photography of Bal Deo, a photographer based in Vancouver, British Columbia, is not what people would expect. That is, unless they have had direct contact with the monks found in India, where this series was shot. Not only does it happen to concentrate on young disciples, the moments Deo captures as full of life and laughter as it is faith and reflection.

Captured both indoors and outdoors, the monk photography looks partially stylized as well. This is due in large part to the talent of the photographer himself as well as the bright red ropes worn by the monks. Standing out against the natural surroundings and colorful temple walls, these red robes are quite beautiful. The monk photography of Bal Deo is truly eye-opening and may inspire trips to India.
