Meditation calms and focuses the mind. Creating a safe space to concentrate on our own thoughts can transform our mind from negative to positive, disturbed to peaceful, unhappy to happy. Meditating cultivates constructive thoughts that we can take with us throughout the day, throughout our lives.
Poolscapes are visual meditations. These images take physical elements (salt, water, sun) and distill them into a state of mind. By capturing the essence of a still mind, the photographs serve as mirrors to the viewer, showing the possibility of transformation.
Water symbolizes purity, clarity and calmness. Unlike the sea, which can be ominous and out of our control, a pool is a safe, contained space. It is in this protected environment where our minds can relax and seek transformation.
