The inspiration for this photo project came through my own experience of embracing Buddhism in America. Even though my parents were Buddhist when I was growing up, I eventually found my own lineage.
The arrival of Buddhism in the west has been well documented in many books, documentaries and even Hollywood movies. As a lay practitioner and photographer, I am interested in exploring the blossoming of the path through a different angle.
The fruition of this project will be a book highlighting the diversity of how lay practitioners integrate their path. From the sciences to the bedroom, Buddhist practices have seeped into every fabric of American culture. Join me in discovering the richness of this ancient practice in a modern context.
