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!

    Well they did say that a picture is worth a thousand words. The only question is what words come to mind when looking at a photograph.

    If you look up the history on college football,
    you find that the majority believe that the first game took place in 1869 between Princeton and Rutgers
    in New Jersey (New Jersey really. That’s one thing you want to keep in mind when you’re talking to
    college football recruiters or coaches and
    making your visits to different colleges. There are some
    great UK football shirts websites that do sell competitively
    priced official football kits and soccer tops.
