This mesmerizing Holy Men religious photography series will haunt you for awhile. It's like they can almost see right through you.

The arresting portraits of holy men is shot by the talented, commercial Brooklyn-based photographer Joey L. Having worked with everyone from National Geographic to Coca-Cola, Joey's new Holy Men religious photography series is a continuation of his older Holy Men work.

Having shot Coptic Christians from North Ethiopia for his past collection, the photographer chose to continue the series with a new focus. In this new series, Sadhus and religious students are the featured subjects.

"Almost every major religion breeds ascetics; wandering monks who have renounced all earthly possessions, dedicating their lives to the pursuit of spiritual liberation," says Joey.

Comprised of portrait-like shots, the strong alluring subjects will intrigue you for sure.
