I came to photography after awakening. In it there is something about capturing the essence of a moment ... the beauty of a fleeting now-ness that is our ultimate truth. A photograph can capture the unspeakable reality and transport others there as well. I could take a photo of almost anything and find it breathtakingly beautiful. In its Silence is the deepest contentment and connection. It has come as a surprise to me that others love my photos, value my way of viewing the world and wish to use them to communicate the importance of conservation and bio-diversity.
Additionally through macro photography I am given a privilege: to look at the world beyond the human eye. In a non-dual or spiritual sense, it is a profound metaphor for how limited our consensus view of the world is. I am humbled and so aware of our anthropocentrism and arrogance.The perfection of a human being is no more or less the perfection of an ant being or a fly being. I cannot separate myself from an ant or a fly ... it is the same perfection. Increasingly I wish to walk more and more lightly on this earth, deeply revering its sublime expression down to the very tiniest detail.
