What is Contemplative Photography?

As a Christian spiritual practice, Contemplative Photography adapts the monastic practice of lectio divina (sacred reading) into a form of visio divina (sacred seeing) that uses the camera as aid to opening the eyes of the heart to God, to see the extraordinary in the ordinary. Contemplative Photography provides a metaphor for the spiritual journey that helps us see the grace of God breaking into our lives through the art of receiving God-given images rather than just “taking” pictures.
