Product description

Review

"This is not your usual 'how to be a better photographer' book. It takes you into deeper water. It requires investigation and commitment to areas new to you. Among other things, you will think about perception in new ways. If you read this book with care, and without skepticism, it will radically expand your thinking, seeing, and photography."--Jay Maisel

"Contemplative photography is about seizing the present moment as one would delicately hold a poppy without shedding its petals. It is about nonattachment; one has nothing to lose and nothing to gain, but everything to offer to the eyes of the viewer. In this beautiful and inspiring book, Andy Karr and Michael Wood introduce us to an approach to photography that nourishes our spiritual life rather than distracting us from it."--Matthieu Ricard, photographer and author of Happiness: A Guide to Developing Life's Most Important Skill

About the Author

Michael Wood studied photography in art school and worked as a commercial photographer in Toronto, Canada. After discovering Buddhist meditation, he began to work on synthesizing his meditation experience with a fresh way of looking and seeing in his professional photography. He teaches workshops to photography clubs and meditation groups.
