A professional photographer and a Zen teacher team with the class to explore the unknown.
Let’s experiment with what it means to use the visual world as a way of practicing the Zen principles of Not Knowing, Bearing Witness, and Loving Action.

Such a photographer might look to the outsider more like a dancer than a stone statue!
