Artist's Statement: "Whisper of the Land"
After some years away from cameras, I started taking photos again in 1985, thirty years ago. I was looking for images to illustrate a book called Nature Meditations. My method was (and still is) to let the camera be a bridge between what I saw with the eyes and what I felt inside. In 1993, I started photographing with analog pinhole cameras, continuously adding images to what became the Healing Landscapes series. The simplicity of pinhole cameras facilitated this connecting of the inner and outer worlds.
At the same time I have always been attracted to the sacred, whether famous places or just some spot that felt special. The light of “enlightened moments” is found not only in the forests and mountains, temples and shrines, but also in reflections, shadows, and patterns in everyday surroundings. This show blends some of my early works together with newer images shown for the first time. As I move forward, my way of using the bridge may change, but the source of inspiration flowing around it is remains the same.
