“I’ve been photographing members of my Zen community, the Village Zendo, for more than a decade. They are laypeople who live and work in New York City and come together to meditate at the Zendo in Manhattan, or at one of our rural retreats. I want to represent how ordinary my community and our Zen practice is, and simultaneously show Zen’s austere beauty.”
