‘To take photographs means… putting one’s head, one’s eye and one’s heart on the same axis.’ ~ Henri Cartier-Bresson
This retreat will invite us to train our contemplative attitude through taking photographs. The camera, by narrowing our vision, can become like a spyglass, a tool to train us to see beauty and richness that are usually hidden from us through our lack of attention.
We won’t be focusing on the technical aspects of photography but using the process of taking pictures to learn how to see more clearly and to capture images from fresh perceptions.
Please do bring a means of taking photographs: a camera, smart phone or tablet.
