An outline a Buddha set upon a white back ground, is simple in both its ambitions and beauty.
I love the pallid minimalism in this picture. It reminds me of winter’s great white blanket. The way it slowly settles upon us, adding a sense of uniformity and calm to the surroundings. Winter has a way of slowing down the pace of life. While this picture was actually taken in early autumn, months prior to the snows, it reminds me of the pure and chaste white that takes hold just after one. In photography there is a lot of talk about “filling the frame” or capturing the action and energy of a scene, but sometimes a simple and modest work can be the most beautiful. The effortless outline of the Buddha is both unassuming and unobtrusive. The scene unravels at the edges and dissipates into the white. A massive form looming is modest in its ambitions; it gives the space needed and invites the eye to wander and explore the picture on its own. A dynamic state achieved through the simplest means.
