“In Wabi-Sabi, greatness exists in the inconspicuous and overlooked details, the exact opposite of the Western ideal of great beauty as something monumental, spectacular and enduring. Its about beauty in the minor and the hidden, the tentative and ephemeral – things so subtle and evanescent, they are invisible to the vulgar eye”  –  Leonard Koren

   Japanese terms:  Wabi- tranquility, harmony, beauty   Sabi- tarnish, decay, rust

Hello Friends,

you don’t have to travel to exotic places to find great subjects. Photography is really the ‘art of seeing’ – recognizing the mundane and transforming it into your personal expression. Here, the scrapyard enticed me first with it’s many antique cars, but then I was taken by all the small, rusty details. It’s important though to abstract – to not see ‘what’ it is, but rather ‘how’ it is. As a result, endless worlds of shape, texture and colour opened up, almost overwelming, resulting in a shooting-frenzie and hundreds of images. It was one of the most inspiring and creative days.

Let’s hear your thoughts
