Wabi Sabi Nature Photography

Matthew photographs nature with an eye to the Japanese aesthetic sensibility Wabi-Sabi (侘寂).


The aesthetic sensibility of Wabi Sabi (侘寂) finds a melancholic beauty in the impermanence of all things.  


Realizing this beauty brings a deep sense of inner peace. 

The Intention behind the Work

Each photo is accompanied by a brief meditative description that reflects the Wabi-Sabi (侘寂) spirit. 


This allows the viewer to  awaken within him- or herself, instantaneously, a moment of aesthetic, sensory, emotional and intellectual appreciation.
