The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

Into Oblivion

Zen and the Art of Photography

Wayne Rowe California State Polytechnic University, Pomona.

Driven by a passion for photography and a fascination with the Zen Buddhist philosophy,
the author conceptually and experientially examines the relationship between Zen Buddhism 
and the art of photography.
Among the subjects discussed:
What is the relationship between haiku and photography?
What is the relationship between the mind of the photographer while creating a photograph and the Zen concept of the Empty Mind?
What role does intuition and feeling play in photography?
In Zen?
Through examination of these concepts and relationships,
the author explains the heightened awareness, joy, and enlightenment he has experienced
through photography and suggests ways that others may share in the creative process.
