Through Zen, there developed a way of life which concentrated on direct experience rather than on rational creeds, sacred books or dogma tenets. Wisdom was passed, not through words, but through a lineage of one-to-one direct transmission of thoughts and images from teacher to student.
This is where I find the spirit behind creating images and thoughts in 'Zen and the Art of Modern Photography'. These images emphasize simplicity and grace without underlying meaning, which to me is itself profoundly meaningful.
As the images of other photographers have inspired me to explore the world, I hope that my own contributions will inspire others to do the same, finding new perspectives and insights in their own mind's eye.
