Photo of Manjari Sharma's feature in Yoga Jounal
The national journal featured the 2004 grad's photograph Lakshmi with a write-up that will also be included in the journal's iPad app.
The image is part of Darshan, an ongoing series that Sharma has been working on since 2011. Her goal is to photographically recreate nine gods and goddesses of Hindu mythology. Each photograph in the Darshan series requires the help of nearly three dozen people to create the set, costumes, jewelry, props, makeup, and more. The Lakshmi image alone took more than three weeks to put together and cost nearly $5,000.
Sharma is a native of Mumbai, India, and attended Gyan Kendra High School.
