Feb 2017 : Sense of Wonder
A “sense of wonder” is a kind of strange awe, or the strange
emotion you feel when you come into contact with a certain
object; it is also a word that describes this concept.
When I climb a mountain, gaze out to sea, get lost in a desert, wander a forest, touch a rock face or water, I feel it. The earth’s heartbeat, one could say. The earth, covered in a layer of skin like a human, seems to be pulsing in various places.
As the issue of global warming gains attention, people speak of environmental destruction, coexistence, and conservation. But human existence seems trivial before the magnificence of nature. I consider the problem to lie, not in nature, but in humans.
I will continue to photograph nature. I will capture my “sense of wonder” in many photographs. Believing that it is a means through which humans will understand nature.
