In Focus: ‘The Hugging Saint’

I had the opportunity to photograph Hindu guru Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi during her visit to the M.A. Center Chicago in LaFox, a religious center that bears her name. 

The main building that hosted “The Hugging Saint” – or Amma, as she is known – was buzzing with activity, and the sound of devotional singing filled the air. 

I was allowed onto the stage where Amma was hugging her followers. Colin Taylor lifted his son, Malcolm, 7 months, into her arms and she embraced him.

Amma visits this area each year, and I look forward to next year.
