These photographs were made during a retreat at Dechen Choling:
The Dharma Place of Great Bliss.
My process is one of curiosity and passion.
I set up the conditions to create by connecting with ‘that’.
A fluttering occurs, ‘a what happens if’ state of mind.
I photograph with a sense of abandon. Like falling in love.
Following one impulse or feeling of attraction after another.
Then I edit ruthlessly.
Reducing hundreds of photographs to the essence.
Following the threads in the work itself.
This is a visceral experience.
The work says ‘yes’ or ‘no’ inside my belly.
I listen and from that a body of work is born.
