Sikh | Faces of Faith

Matt and I photographed 8 different religions for a photo essay 'Faces of Faith' for Honolulu Magazine.
Mohinder Maan, Sikh faith.
We met Mohinder at his Hawaii Kai home and over cardamom-spiced tea and biscuits, he recited the pillars of his faith. 'All faiths are equal to his—there are many paths to God. Work hard and make an honest living. Share what you earn. God is present in everything we see.'

Then we watched him perform the ritual reading of the Sikh holy text, Guru Granth Sahib, at his ceremonial altar off to the side of his bedroom.
