The artist states, "21-year-old Lauren Franko was in college, leading a rich and full life out in "the World", as she calls it. She had a boyfriend and plans for marriage and children. But instead of this seemingly known path, she felt called to religious life and, after hearing God propose to her via a song on YouTube, has chosen to live her life as a cloistered nun. She now leads a hidden life of prayer and ritual, shielding herself from the outside world in order to focus on the spiritual realm, and a higher calling of praying to save all souls. Radical Love is a photographic narrative of the beginning of Sister Lauren's journey within a small monastic community in New Jersey, USA. Documenting her passage through the foundational years of religious life, the story is a window into her early love of God. The project reveals her daily interactions living within a small community of nuns who are in various stages of their own spiritual paths, the same path that lay ahead for her."
