Buddhist Photographers

Buddhist monks taking photographs of each other in front of the Sydney Opera House.

Buddhist Holiday Snaps

These lovely monks were visiting Sydney after attending a world Buddhist convention in Tasmania. They were relaxing and taking photos of each other in front of the opera house. I loved how their camera was the same deep maroon colour as their Buddhist trappings. We got chatting with Venerable Anurudha (pictured) and Venerable Kaset who told us about the Buddhist Centre near Sydney where Venerable Kaset lives and works.

Sacred: A Photography Exhibition - 18th April 2009

My friend Richard Alma is having a showing of his photographs at Gallery 41, which is at 41 Riley Street, Woolloomooloo, Sydney. The show opens at 2pm on Saturday, April 18th, 2009. All welcome, bring friends. These are stunning photographs, sacred and beautiful. The gallery is open Wednesday to Saturday 1-6pm and the show runs until the 2nd May.

Artist Biography:

Richard Alma is a Sydney based photographer. He is largely self-taught, though has taken some short courses at the Australian College of Photography in Paddington, where several of his images were selected for both exhibitions and publication in the annual review.

His range of influences is vast, but he is particularly inspired by the work of Henri Cartier Bresson and Sebastiao Salgado.

His passion for photography has taken him to many corners of the globe on a quest to capture images that ignite the senses, shift perspectives and invite viewers to explore what they think and how they perceive.

Artist Statement:

For me, (Richard says) photography is about capturing that decisive moment that encompasses emotion, meaning and truth. Each photograph tells a story, a record of a moment that's in the past and has gone forever. My aim is to convey a sense of meaning and empathy through the imagery I share, and to unite myself, the image, and the viewer in an exploration of what it means to be human. It is my hope that through such exploration we can cultivate a deeper understanding of our place within the world.
