In this workshop, we will be learning about the Japanese aesthetic wabi-sabi and how it relates to photography. We will learn to notice, appreciate and be inspired by the beauty of mundane, everyday life; while keeping this aesthetic of transience and imperfection in mind.

“In our photography, we can start exploring this aesthetic by getting closer to the shapes, colors, textures and patterns all around us. Stains on an old kitchen pot. Rust on a weathered gate. Muddy footprints on a wet pavement. Wrinkles on a familiar face. Withered branches under a winter sky. Can we shift our mindset to hold these sights with the same love and tenderness we normally reserve for a sunset?” — Eric Kim

We don’t have to achieve perfection in our photographs for them to be intrinsically valuable. Even the finished print will not last forever. What is important is that we spend time in the present moment doing thoughtful, meaningful work and sharing it with others.

Beginners are welcome! Please bring a journal, blank book, or notebook to class.
