Woman and a Sumi Brush


If the discipline of Zen painting can be applied to archery, tea ceremony or flower arrangement, then why not photography?

Using a Sumi brush, and painting with developer as a substitute for ink, these images were completed in moments.  No time for hesitancy, doubts or darkroom technique. For that moment, only I, the medium and the image exist.

Woman and a Sumi Brush is about a photographer's dream to be also a Zen painter and the dear friends who helped to achieve it.  The work is personal and subjective and the images are about essence and not realism.
