I have for a long time been interested in the sacred spaces and art from various spiritual traditions which proved means for practitioners to remove themselves from daily preoccupations and to open to deeper experience. Judging by the archaeological record, human beings appear to have always had a propensity for creating such spaces, objects, and images - perhaps the oldest preoccupation of art. This small series of photographs derives from visits to a rustic Catholic chapel and the Upaya Zen Center, both on the outskirts of Santa Fe, New Mexico. As different as they are in respects, they resonate with my personal experience, having been brought up Catholic but later being much influenced by Buddhism.
These photographs originated in mostly natural places where I felt some intuitive affinity or attraction, most being near where I lived for some years in southeastern North Carolina. In making these I was exploring that affinity - a threshold joining the visible world of trees, water, and lonesome places, to an invisible and fertile other-world.
