Wabi Sabi


Wabi Sabi
Celie’s beautiful shot and commentary from last night below.


I took this shot yesterday in the gardens of the abandoned boys home in Newhaven. I saw the afternoon light hitting the budding leaf and it was so beautiful. It made me think of the Japanese aesthetic of Wabi Sabi … how beauty exists in impermanence and simplicity. The irony in this is that I lost the high resolution version of this pic because Lightroom was having conniptions, rendering this image all the more impermanent. Coincidentally, I am teaching a picture book called Wabi Sabi next week to Deakin undergrads so despite my sad loss, I can at least use this as an example of the aesthetic that the Western world may have trouble understanding. There is always a silver lining 🙂 #phillipisland #newhaven #boyshome #basscoast #gippsland #victoria #australia #wabisabi #japan #philosophy #wabisabiculture #sony #sonya7ii #sonyaustralia #impermanence #simplicity
