Tomasz Gudzowaty’s photographs of Shaolin monks bring together two of my passions – the awe-inspiring skills of kungfu and the inspirational nature of art photography. These pictures are from his book Shaolin Temple and they are without question magnificent visual images. This Polish photographer, who is based in Warsaw, spent time with the Buddhist martial arts monks at the legendary Shaolin Temple in Henan Province, China and captured that intoxicating marriage of meditation and movement that is the heart of kungfu. The monks were happy to be his models and to show that there is also an unabashed show-biz quality to their discipline. Truly inspiring.
