Inner Knowing (An Introduction)

December 15, 2012 073

…memories…dreams…inner life…intuition…sub consciousness…tales…mythic worlds…the mysterious…I am planning to explore deeply these subjects in my photography (in monochrome) to express my inner thoughts on the different aspects of existence…the image above is a representation of this project…I’ll post them here, sometimes using less words (maybe include a line of thought, a short poem or just a word)…other times with no words at all…just the image, either with or without a title…and leave it at that…just like that…

  1. Sounds wonderful. I believe the deepest essence of our inner world can only be experienced without words or concepts, so a perfect form of expression Virgilio

    • thanks, Michele, for the insightful thoughts…i wholeheartedly agree with you…there are also times when the experience goes beyond words and concepts which i find so beautiful because i believe that they can only be articulated by the silent language of the heart.

    It’s really true, that few things really don’t need words to express them as they have all that needs to be conveyed withing themselves.

  3. With inner thoughts there is no escaping honesty or visualizing reality. How brave of you to try. When I looked at your photo what came instantly to mind was ikebana…

    • thanks, Ellen. yes, it takes courage to travel inward…but i have to because it exposes the “i” in all its honesty and i can confront it head on. when i do this, i experience healing and transformation…i like your interpretation of the image, Ikebana. you hit it right. the image brings together consciousness and subconsciousness which sits well with ikebana which brings forth together nature and humanity. love the ways and practices of the Japanese…so much wisdom.

    Excellently image the unseen, or the hidden. Simplicity is the capability in looking through the complexity. If without the pole at the back, this picture would look almost perfect to me.
