This photographic session was in honor of Quan Yin, the Goddess of Compassion & Healing, often referred to as “The One Who Hears the Cries of the World.” Quan Yin, also spelled Kwan Yin or Kuan Yin, is tender,
compassionate, wise and protective, always coming to the aid of those in need, especially children. She is said to have a thousand arms with eyes in her palms, which she uses to spot and help those who are in pain. She is known as the Chinese Bodhisattva, which means, “enlightened being. “

In this session, the models elicited compassion for each other and themselves, as well as human kind.
