The poetry of vision - a mindful approach to photography

Paul Sanders is a fine art photographer, Fuji ambassador, speaker and photography mentor, who is passionate about the benefits of photography to mental health and wellness.
In this talk, Paul will explore the beauty of imperfection and not seeking external validation for your images, but finding the joy in the experience of being present while you observe and truly see your subject.

Paul will draw references from poetry and art, whilst sharing a wide variety of images as he discusses the importance of vulnerability and an open mind while creating your work.

I believe that photography has the power to influence our perception of the world around us, building a sense of appreciation and contentment simply by taking the time to notice what’s around us and how that makes us feel. Through photography, we can discover a better way to understand ourselves, our thoughts and our feelings, and to reconnect with a world we normally rush through.
