Prayer Wheels

Only 19 Carthusian monks now live in St. Hugh’s Charterhouse ten acre Monastery in Sussex which was originally built to house 250. The cloisters are so long, some over half a mile, that they have taken to using bicycles to get them from their cells to their work and prayers. It took over a month to arrange to photograph the silent order for only 15 minutes of photography between prayers.
