The Sound of Serenity (2018)
I am fascinated by black and white photography.
The world in monochrome invites people into a dream where each viewer is free to use his or her imagination. The virtue of black and white photography is that it gives praise to those things that cannot be seen.
When I'm in nature, peering through the viewfinder at the landscape, I've noticed that nature produces some shared sound audible to us all. We can hear that same sound in the mountains, the ocean, the forest, and lakes.
Why is it that people seek solace from the hustle and bustle of the city by the sea or in the mountains? Is it not some vestige of a time long ago when we humans lived together with nature? Perhaps this is what we might be hearing in nature, the sound of serenity that calms our souls.
