About Contemplative Photography
The moment it clicks, we are becoming a little bit more real – in our shared memory.
Spontaneity, commitment, compassion, and connection are states of being that arise in me through meditation and contemplation. These attributes seek their expression in my art, in my charitable work, and in the active shaping of my relationships.
My method of contemplative photography has a magical quality. It makes the resonance that arises between me and my subjects tangible, regardless of whether I photograph still objects, humans, or landscapes.
My photographs have a political message, as they show the value of protecting the fragility of us humans and the Earth. They result in healing, as they encourage you to pause, to breathe, to feel, and to linger. They create connections where there were separations. And they subtly ask radical questions and give space for your answers.
