Photography as Meditation and Mirror

with Andy Abrahams Wilson

In the age of Instagram and the unprecedented taking and sharing of photos, how can we bring a deeper consciousness to this process to enrich our art and our lives? In a time of hyper connectivity, how can photography truly help us engage — both to the world around us and within us? At every step, photography is a balancing of relationships (light and shadow, time and space, self and other), the merging of which creates a still moment, a meditation. At once a receptor and projector of light, the camera becomes a meditative tool for dissolving and distilling these relationships.
