Images of the sacred divine in contemporary women
I created this book to honor the Divine Feminine Goddess that resides in all women. The inherent powerful beauty that resides in women sometimes needs a witness to bring it to light. I have seen this so many times and am always astonished by the transformation. When a woman is truly present in the moment, connected to the natural environment and feeling strong, she effortlessly embodies the Goddess. After many years of photographing women and studying Goddess mythology I have found that women possess the attributes of one or more of the eight Infinite Goddesses and sometime all of them at once. The women in this book are contemporary examples of ancient archetypes. May the images in this book be a tether to reconnect you to your divine essence and inspire you to create images of your divine Goddess self.
"When I first saw these tender and triumphant images by Tamara Trejo, my heart lit up like a lantern. She has given us images to spark our imagination, reignite our sacred feminine fire, and explode our hope for a more balanced world within and without. These photographs are holy icons pointing to a new world. Take heart. The Great Mother is returning." Jan Phillips, author of No Ordinary Time
"Tamara Trejo not only sees the beauty in each of us but is a master of capturing that essence with film. This book is a pictorial celebration and tribute to the feminine of humanity" Jill Bolte Taylor, Ph.D. author of My Stroke of Insight
