The way we see things changes them, and the things we see change us. In this artist’s talk, photographer Jean Miele shares his work, and thoughts on photography as an extraordinary form of everyday magic – a means of exploration, divination and transformation readily available to all of us.
So it turns out that I’ve been giving a series of Dharma Talks disguised as Photography Lectures.
Since I gave the intial “What Does Intuition Look Like?” talk for ASMP back in March, I’ve been developing the theme. I presented a refined version for Pacific New Media at the University of Hawai’i at Manoa a couple of weeks ago – and another two nights ago, in NY, for the Park West Camera Club. The basic idea is that we leave messages for ourselves in our work, and create kind of a “trail of breadcrumbs” everywhere, for ourselves to follow. Where does the trail lead? To us. To our individual truth, and to the lessons we have set for ourselves in this lifetime.
Here’s a teaser from the ASMP event.
The whole talk will be released soon via ASMP IDEAshare.
Thanks, Kevin Michael Reed for inviting me to speak, and for all the work you (and your friends and colleaguses at ASMP) did to make the event, and the videos, happen!
