"I fell in love with Sej's photography at first sight. How can you react otherwise when pure love and wisdom appear all of a sudden in front of you? Sej has the same boundless love for humans, for life and for TRUTH (I would have written "for God" but I know this word is often so widely misjudged). This love combined with a rare Intelligence of the heart, conveys an incredible depth to her portraits. Watching one of her works is like listening to Mooji's satsang: it is so simple, direct and crystal clear, it brings you home to your universal Self. Deep deep gratitude for your work, beloved Sej, and for who you are. You are an artist, and I feel so lucky that we met in Rishikesh. I love you."
Véronique Lenne Meditation Teacher Brussels, Belgium

"Sej is a gifted photographer, writer and human rights activist. I am moved by her extraordinary photographs and her big heart! Go see her will be moved and changed!"
Micki Dickoff  Emmy Award-Winning Filmmaker Los Angeles, CA

"I absolutely love Sej's work!! Her images are so strikingly vibrant and beautiful, and they are so much more. Every photo is a full experience in itself, an insight into another world. The stories behind the photos are so rich because they come from her own life experiences traveling the world, and the viewer can feel this incredible energy of adventure and freedom. For me, Sej's art (her portraiture in particular) brings me to a deeper place within myself and serves as a window into a broader perspective of life. She clearly puts her entire heart and soul into her work and I truly believe it has the power to connect and unify people from all walks of life! As a person, Sej is so open, loving and understanding and her art is a wonderful expression of who she is."
– Scott Bramer Jazz Musician, Los Angeles CA

What a privilege to witness your beautiful art after Mooji's powerful satsang. My blessings that you will continue your journey through your lens and capture all of the divinity of our world, and transform it through your art.
 – Ileana Katzenelson San Diego, CA

"Amazing photography and even amazing stories captured and expressed through them. Sejal reflects her beautiful physical and spiritual journey through her shots."
Aysha Shaikh Meditation Teacher at Art of Living Organization Los Angeles, CA

"I met Sej at one of her exhibitions in Rishikesh, India in 2017 and was blown away by the way she could capture heartfelt moments and transform them into pieces of art. She agreed to take some photos for me to use for my website. The images she took were incredible! I have since used them for my website and business cards and continually get positive comments about them! I would highly recommend Sej for any photography assignment you may have!!"
