“A Basic Role of the Photographer”

The Chinese Tiantai School of Buddhism (transmitted to Japan as the Tendai School) believed that “even non-sentient beings have Buddha-Nature.” All matter is Spirit: Spirit and matter are one. And to declare this Truth is a basic role of the photographer as healer: to proclaim for us that this rock, this tree, whatever, is Spirit as matter. That we may Know this of ourselves, and then of all. That we all are, as the ancient Chinese artists believed, “a wedding of Spirit and matter.”
