PHOTOGRAPHY VIDEO “ESSAYS”
Short, informal talks, revealing different facets of his approach.
Black and White vs. Color (2-pt Video)
Remarkable insights into the deep power of black and white photography: color shows reality, but black and white shows the deeper Reality that underlies it.
The Little Things
“My favorite photographs are of the little things – things like a blade of grass, a bit of rust. It’s easy to see God as a cheetah or a lion – but to see God as a little bit of rust…”
Alive with Spirit
“With all my photographs, I try to convey that this is Alive – Alive with Spirit. And hope that somebody viewing it will get a sense of that Spirit.”
Using the Correct Eye
The Life Energy of a photograph will be much higher if it is taken with the correct, “good processing” eye.
The Power of Slides
“If you really want feel what a photograph can do, use a slide and projector. It’s a magical, other-worldly, almost god-like experience.”
My First Vision of Light
With reference to William Blake’s poem “To Thomas Butts,” Dr. Diamond discusses his “first vision of light.”
Reveals a therapeutic approach to portrait photography to greatly raise the Life Energy of the subject.
The Art of Relationship (4-pt Video)
The essence to healing photography is understanding the art of relationship: really relating to the subject deeply – not just seeing it, but seeing into it. Seeing that it’s not just a twig, but all of creation as the twig.
Patterns and Inner Patterns
“To me, photography is recording the inner patterns that are everywhere, but lie beyond the obvious. I want to encourage people to look beyond the obvious, to where they have never seen before.”
Holding Up the Flower
The Buddha, in a famous presentation, held up a flower for his disciples in a particular way, an example of what is called Direct Transmission. Photography too can be Direct Transmission.
