The Eye Is a Door: Landscape, Photography, and the Art of Discovery

Seeing is a way of knowing, photography a way of thinking. To photograph mindfully is to look and think, to open a door between what can be seen directly and what is hidden and can only be imagined. The Eye Is a Door is for all who want to use their eye and camera to think and discover: to look deeply at the surface of things and beyond to the stories landscapes tell, the processes that shape human lives and communities, the earth itself, and the universe.

Abstract

Seeing is a way of knowing, photography a way of thinking. To photograph mindfully is to look and think, to open a door between what can be seen directly and what is hidden and can only be imagined. The Eye Is a Door is for all who want to use their eye and camera to think and discover: to look deeply at the surface of things and beyond to the stories landscapes tell, the processes that shape human lives and communities, the earth itself, and the universe.
