Video: Looking at “The Practice of Contemplative Photography” with Andy Karr

If you’ve seen our current issue, you’ve likely been struck by the photos found in the feature article “A Way of Seeing,” in which Andy Karr and Michael Wood introduce the concept of “contemplative photography.” Its practice, Karr and Wood say, doesn’t merely change the way we take pictures; it changes the way we see the world. Here Andy Karr shares examples from the new book he and Wood have just released, The Practice of Contemplative Photography. Enjoy.

For more about The Practice of Contemplative Photography and Andy Karr’s tour in support of the book, friend the book on Facebook, or see its page on the Shambhala Publications website.

    I am looking forward to reading this book! I have found photography a very effective way of practicing mindfulness and have captured some amazing shots. Simplicity is beautiful!

    What times are you going to be at the bookstore in Boulder and at the Center?

    You actually make it appear so easy together with your presentation but I in finding this matter to be really
    something that I feel I would by no means understand.

    It kind of feels too complicated and extremely wide
    for me. I’m having a look ahead for your subsequent
    post, I will try to get the hold of it!
