Photographers Depict Vessels In Their Own Way

In this work, as in all others, I’m struggling to get to the heart of the matter. All subjects, worthy of shooting, have a heart and a soul.
I’m simply trying to nail the heart and soul of the subject onto the paper.

As a wise man, Ajaan Lee Dhammadharo, once said: “Concentration is a firm intent, focused on a single object. You have to contemplate to find peace and true vision. We speak of discernment and concentration as separate things, but actually they're one and the same. Discernment is just the movement of concentration.”

Beyond that, I try and keep things simple. Intellect is the enemy.

The world is my studio. I see something beautiful and I try not to let anything come between me and it while I shoot it.
