India Ashram: The Love Test
One couple's reluctant quest for enlightenment in an Indian ashram.

For the first two hours every morning, each person staying at the ashram gathers for chanting. To get this shot, I had to force my way into a dusty, cob-web filled library to peek through a tiny slit in the window. Only when the participants roared in chorus 'Shanti, om," which means "peace," could I click the shutter.
