‘Anicca’ is the Buddhist notion that all of existence is in a constant state of flux and impermanence. The ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus also expressed this in his famous aphorisms:
“All entities move and nothing remains still,
You cannot step twice into the same river.”
Long exposure and fine art photography is a fitting and creative way to contemplate on this existential condition that can be both suffering and liberating. Anywhere we turn our camera/attention at – landscapes, waterscapes, cityscapes, terrain vague, urban/rural life – becomes a canvas of cultivated awareness, sometimes joyfully ecstatic, others overwhelmingly tragic, but guiding us to move forward with never ending integrality, always partial, already whole.
