Zen  –  to be the moment


These nature photographs below were taken while spending time in remote wilderness and mountainous areas – trekking in groups and alone.  Poetic photographs happen when external scenes correspond with internal states of mind.


Nature provides one with a space which unlike the city, does not make constant sensory and cerebral demands.  A space where mind is calm and spirit expands.  It just is.


Photography enables me to create and define a personal relationship between culture and nature. Relatively speaking the images present nature as art:  It was not necessary to cultivate nature to turn it into art – at those moments the connection between subject and object transformed it into art.
