I have thought some more about Baudelaire's and Gonzalez-Andrieu's comments that I mentioned yesterday and my response to those comments wasn't quite what I want to say. I do not think that the "More" they mention resides somewhere other than in the subject (perceiver) or the object (perceived). Rather I believe that it is located in both, and/or both are located in it. Contemplatives in most traditions have all claimed something like this, whether they call the More Brahman (Hinduism) or the Dao (Daoism) or God or Christ (Christianity). Thomas Merton wrote that if we pay close attention, really take time to look and listen, we find "a hidden Wholeness" in everything that is, a Wholeness in which we move and live and have our being and which relates us to everything else that is. It is this hidden Wholeness I am seeking to reveal or uncover or disclose (as Heidegger put it) in my photographs. But one has to slow down, take time, and above all, pay attention if one is to notice that Wholeness whenever and however it is revealed.
