  • About the series: Renunciation: Coming from a Jain community, Pooja always encountered debates and long conversation on renunciation that ignited her deep interest in the subject. In the year 2006, her curiosity brought her amidst these nuns and she started documenting their lives, to find convincing answers as to what spiritual abandonment meant to them. Around the same time she began studying photography. It was only in the year 2009 that she was successful in building a respectful bond with some of the nuns. She is still searching for satisfying answers from those who have disconnected themselves from this world.
