Wabi Sabi Photo

A few words for the visitors and fans… You’ll mostly see our images, you won’t see discussion of the gear that was used because this is about fine art photography and discussions on gear are pointless to the viewer.

We appreciate everyone’s response to our collective. We are a small group of photographers in various parts of the world. Our photographers are from Memphis, Miami, Canada, Mexico via Italy, Chicago and New York at this moment.

We will continue to provide our stylized images for our friends and fans. If you have any questions, feel free to ask and we will respond swiftly.

We will be posting more information once the year comes around. If you wish to know about an individual photographer so that you can arrange to buy some of his work, send us a message or comment on a picture you like.

What is Wabi Sabi?

Wabi-sabi (侘寂) represents a comprehensive Japanese world view or aesthetic centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete”. It is a concept derived from the Buddhist teaching of the three marks of existence (三法印 sanbōin), specifically impermanence (無常 mujō), the other two being suffering ( ku) and emptiness or absence of self-nature ( ).

Characteristics of the wabi-sabi aesthetic include asymmetry, asperity (roughness or irregularity), simplicity, economy, austerity, modesty, intimacy, and appreciation of the ingenuous integrity of natural objects and processes.
