Photography represents physics that transcend our normal understanding of reality. Time can be slowed or stopped; solid materials can be translucent and blurred; and perspective can change physical dimensions. When paired with the infinite possibilities of post-production, the photograph itself becomes an idiosyncratic “space” for the imagination. In Numen, this metaphysical space is adapted for the practice of reverence: the creation of meaningful relationships with Nature, landforms and the sublime.
