Soldiers of Beauty and Soulfulness. Robert Sturman Photography.

Via on Oct 4, 2011

We could not express it in words, the extraordinary beauty all around. And so in an attempt, we invented the arts.

Soldiers of beauty and soulfulness, in service to humanity.

Our work is being delivered in a language all can understand without thought.

The memory is timeless and it feels good.

We build bridges with the agony and the ecstasy, a tear and a smile, the joy and the sorrow.

The following selection of works were created with three immensely gifted yoginis (Megan Marie, Bernadette Birney and Jen Weaver) by a pond, in a forest grove somewhere in Conneticut…. Robert Sturman.

    These photos are hauntingly lovely. I love the mood — soort of a cross between the ethereal and Wonder Woman. Makes a person wish she could spend all her time practicing yoga.
