Landscapes, Femininity, and Mindfulness
Welcome to the latest transformation of my photography. Since the age of 12, when I discovered photography, I have loved photographing land and seascapes. Then almost 9 years ago, at the age of 58, I began doing nude figure photography. And when I did my first outdoor nude figure photoshoot, well, it just all came together. The beauty of the female form, in line and curve, in light and shadow, were the same elements that had drawn me to landscape photography all those years ago. The female form and nature. What a beautiful combination. I thought it just didn’t get any better than that. Well, it has.
I recently returned from my third mindfulness retreat at Thich Nhat Hanh’s Deer Park Monastery in Escondido, California. I came home with the clear and confident determination to gather from my past images and to create new images that call me, and hopefully you as well, back to our true home. For me that now means offering you images that weave together landscapes, femininity, and mindfulness, images that engender within us connections to the deepest parts of ourselves, images that stir up within us the ancient and the archetypal, images which are at the same time strong and free and wild and grounded and beautiful and sacred, images that call us home.
It is my hope and my intention that you will find in the links of the photosets below images that take your breath away and give it back again, images that inspire you, and images that indeed call you home.
