here’s something nice and peaceful for you on this fine Thursday. i discovered the work of photographed Kari Medig, whose wonderful snowy photographs i was intending to feature, when i saw this story he photographer about an order of nuns who live in the wilderness of British Columbia. a bit of googling later and i found the original article about the Queen of Peace monastery in Coast Mountain Culture magazine – read it here.
Deep in the Squamish Valley, the Catholic nuns of Queen of Peace Monastery followed their god into the mountains. But who are these women living in habitual peace far from the city? Meet an ex-national Nordic ski racer, Tanzanian sisters and the Canadian West Coast nuns who practice their religion where most recreate.
