have chosen the term "wabi" to describe
my goal in photography.
There are several definitions of "wabi", one is "an
understated form of beauty, a quality of refinement masked by
rustic simplicity". Another is "a quality of austere
and serene beauty expressing a mood of spiritual solitude".
My goal is to capture the essence of what I am looking at, be
it ordinary, or as in a few of these pictures, what would be
considered not so austere, but that which can bring out their
beauty in a different way.
