More About This Book

Overview

Our experience of the rush of the contemporary world often awakens an inner longing for real rest and spiritual depth, but choosing to live cut off from the world is difficult for many to understand. During his fifty years as a professional photographer, Frank Monaco has often been welcomed as a guest within the walls of enclosed monasteries and convents. Brothers and Sisters brings together many of the images he has taken of monks and nuns at work, at prayer, and in the service of their communities. The 67 duotone photographs are accompanied by extracts from the simple rules—from the Benedictines, Carmelites, and others—that these men and women have elected to follow, and which guide every moment of their lives. No reader who sees these photos will be able to imagine life within the walls of a monastery in quite the same way. "A masterful collection of black-and-white photographs woven with prose.... The angles and composition of the photography are outstanding."—The Dallas Morning News

    To Look and Look again

    This slender book bringing together a collection of Frank Monaco's photos of monks and nun (and some Franciscans who are not monks thrown in for good measure) is a unique window into monastic life. The photos capture the many nuances and moods of the men and women who have been consecrated to God in this radical, joyous life. It's a book to look at again and again.
