These photographs invite us to be present to what Merton calls the “living and self-creating mystery of which I am myself a part, to which I am myself my own unique door.

These photographs invite us to “one aesthetic illumination” in which we see the “mundane” and the “spiritual” as one. As Merton writes, Zen “seeks not to explain but to pay attention, to become aware, to be mindful, in other words to develop a certain kind of consciousness …”. It is this experience to which Merton invites us as we view these photographs:  “Come and see.”
