“Beyond what we think we know, seeing is a step into the unknown and requires some degree of intention and awakening. Discovered by intuition seeing comes from within our selves, not from some vague “out there” of the outer world. Its force is above all force, for it vanquishes every subtle thing and penetrates every solid thing.” ~David Ulrich
Photography is a process, looking to feel that I am here. At the moment of seeing there must be an equal action that calls me to stand still. A need to awaken becomes more inwardly alive. Relaxing tensions with impartial non-reaction, to look at myself without searching and see through silence, gathering into one.
I find peace in a meditation to be in a state where all projections, attachments and identifications fall away. The consciousness becomes focused. Its not what I want, its to be. I serve as a willingness to be this instrument of perception in balance with being. Beauty, peace and love are the essence we recognize. In whatever circumstance the result is a practice of presence made visible by a relationship with what actually occurs in the midst of life connecting to a larger whole.
