Looking deeply, in love with awareness itself. And what is this awareness that exists beyond any idea of a self? How to nurture it, cultivate it? Meditation helps, and I think photography is good too.
I’ve meditated for all of my adult life (with a few breaks) — from age 14 — and very early in my photography I noticed that there was of course an interplay between meditation and the process of seeing and making photographs. As life and these practices go along, it becomes more and more absurd to make distinctions between the two. In some sense this is an artificial distinction here, as I consider most of my photographs to reflect my “good eye” and years of development of my contemplative practices. They are all about looking deeply.
