Photography as a Ceremonial Art

June 21, 2019

Robin Wall Kimmerer says, "the power of ceremony: it marries the mundane to the sacred." In this way I believe that photography has a ceremonial quality, for it helps us see the sacred in the mundane, the sacred in a leaf or a blade of grass. It was Dr. John Diamond, who first taught me the 'extra-ordinary' as he calls it, in a little blade of grass, and that it is these little things in life that matter most. And when I remember to tune into the little things, it is then that I feel more connected to the natural world, and those around me. And there is never a doubt with Geordie, my partner, if he looses me in a meadow or a field, he will always find me photographing in the grasses!
