On the heels of Easter-Passover weekend, we bring you Erial Ali, an artist based in Sausalito, Cali., who takes boring, earthly photographs and transforms them into what he calls “Celestial Soul Portraits”. The creative process involves Ali “tuning into you” to “get an aspect of your celestial self” and, upon receiving a 50 percent down payment, turning you and/or yours into a radiant revelation, possibly with a beam of jubilant light bursting forth from your forehead. To view more of Ali’s creations, visit iasos.com.
