Contemplative Photography

This course guides students to explore mindfulness in photography. Students experience the relationship between the contemplative state of mind of clear and non-conceptual awareness and the creative endeavor through photography. Students consider reality, space, time, and illusion as ways to gain insights into photography and the meditative state. Students develop visual awareness through the use of the photographic medium. Through viewing films, readings, and research, students expand their knowledge of potent imagery. Critiques and discussions foster the advancement of students' art images.
