“When Everything Feels Right” takes a meditative approach to photography. Utilising contemplative photography, alongside abstract self-portraiture, serves to organically process my feelings and aid mindful reflection. This project evolved from my dissertation, “An exploration into the use of surrealist photography, as a tool for catharsis”. Writing my dissertation resulted in me becoming more in touch with my own practice and recognising it as a form of therapy for me. I was also inspired by the book “The Practice of Contemplative Photography, Seeing the World with Fresh Eyes” by Andy Karr and Michael Wood and Sophie Howarth’s book “The Mindful Photographer”. I have also found a practice called Miksang; originating as a form of meditation through photography, I have been using it in my work to intimately connect my mind and eye in greater depth.
