Contemplation Through Photography

  • Course Dates: Sat 16 May 2015, 10:30 am to Sun 17 May 2015, 4:30 pm

Contemplation has a rich tradition within Christianity, as well as other religion traditions including Buddhism.

It is connected to a slow attentive looking, and an awareness that often when we look we do not really see. The course will contain a mixture of practical and theoretical components including sessions on different approaches to contemplation, current thinking within philosophy on seeing things in themselves, and learning to use a camera to see things differently.

Participants need a reasonable digital camera. No prior knowledge or other experience necessary.
