The Convent

I am not religious, but since I was a little girl, I've been fascinated by the nuns and their quiet, humble and somewhat misterious lives among the thick and old convent walls, incense scent, long echoing church aisles... The idea of having only one lifelong, immaterial and almighty lover, spending days in praise of his name and waiting for the moment of reunion with him when you close your eyes for the last time...intrigues me the most..

I took these photos in a small island convent at the Croatian coast..


  1. one su mi strašljive.. neznam zašto ali kao da imaju 2 lica..jedno pobožno, a drugo..who knows :) -sanja

  2. meni su totalno misteriozne, baš zato...;)

  3. I can't even imagine how it feels to me a monk. I mean, I guess it's ok for a day or two, to clear your head and all... But a whole life behind those walls... Nope.
