Photography has many purposes. The one that matters to me, is to be Therapeutic.
None of our images are intended to treat or diagnose. Serious diseases and medical conditions should always be treated under a physician's supervision. Do not delay in seeking medical advice if you have any medical or psychological condition or whenever the symptoms of an ailment are present.
"My blog is a collection of thoughts - zuihitsus.
It is said of Lafcadio Hearn’s books on Japan that they are zuihitsu, defined as a collection of essays.
I’m similar: I don’t write books but short essays that my wife lovingly stitches together into books.
Some of the terms used in the blog posts are very specific. We are working on a small Glossary page to clarify these." John Diamond, MD
All our Prints are Hand-Printed
All our prints are hand-printed. It requires very special printing equipment and a highly experienced printing artist to ensure that the Life Energy that the photographer captured is kept throughout the printing process. Very special papers and inks, and printers and programs are being used.
So far we have not found a way to ensure that the Life Energy component is kept with downloadable images. For this reason we do not offer downloads.
