What do Zen monks have in common with photographers?
The intention of both is to catch the present moment.
Dr. Jörg Zobel combines his writings with his photography work in this entertaining picture philosophy book.
The content results from over 7 years of travelling to spiritual places and 20 years researching on the topic of happiness. This is a great (gift) book for everybody who wants to find happiness in the here and now. The new book builds up on the author’s previous books “Yo - eine Reise zum Glueck” and his photo exhibitions.

From the preface:
The essence of photography is to capture a present moment.
A picture can only capture what is here and now.
It cannot capture a future moment, nor a past moment.
In the same way that a photographer presses the shutter button, the mind captures the moment. In the same way that a photographer zooms his camera lens on a beautiful detail, the mind zooms in on the beauty of a moment. This book is an inspiration to discover the present moment as the source of happiness.
