With Effortless Beauty, Julie DuBose brings a new perspective to photography. She talks in an intimate way not just about how we express our experience with our camera, but about a whole new and fresh way to experience our visual world altogether.
Julie guides us through the process of seeing without our usual habitual ways of experiencing what we see, so that we can have vivid, mind-stopping visual perceptions, and express those perceptions exactly as we see them.
This book is a road map for taking a different kind of photograph, which might even lead to a different kind of living: direct living through direct seeing.
“This is our world. It has a heart beat and our blood runs through it, like a river of life and feeling, with qualities of hard, soft, wet, smooth, full, empty, lonely, and joyful.
We can express the experience of direct living with our camera. The images will be real, the genuine article. They carry within them our heart, our mind—the blood of our experience.”
