Spy Vibe began Camera Week by looking at Photography as the prefect tool for mindful engagement. In my teaching I stress the importance of using the camera to make closer observations of the world (which I call "treasure hunting"), as well as to construct images in the studio. By moving through the process of exploration, reflection, and revision, we become tuned in to each moment and to our intellectual and emotional perceptions. I brought this up as a way to also celebrate the stellar creativity of the 1960s. In my last post, we looked at a large collection of images that showed the members of The Beatles engaged in the process of taking pictures. Today we continue that theme by looking at images of various artists from the era and their cameras. It's inspiring to see people who worked at a high level of music or film, for example, also spending their free time with Photography. As role models, the images remind us that we can engage in the creative process each day, and by doing so, we tap into a deep well that keeps giving.
