Welcome to Dharma Art Photography. This site and my photography is inspired by Chogyam Trungpa's teachings on Dharma Art which encourages the development of clear perception and uninhibited expression.
"The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without the camera."
"The term, dharma art, does not mean art depicting Buddhist symbols or ideas.... Rather, dharma art refers to art that springs from a certain state of mind on the part of the artist that could be called the meditative state. It is an attitude of directness and unselfconsciousness in one's creative work. The basic problem in artistic endeavor is the tendency to split the artist from the audience and then try to send a message from one to the other. When this happens, art becomes exhibitionism. In meditative art, the artist embodies the viewer as well as the creator of the works...."
