Wabi Sabi Photography

Wabi Sabi in photography creates fascinating abstracts full of color, texture, and expression.

The imperfect creates a bold artistic statement in your home, office, or restaurant.

“Aging has a wonderful beauty, and we should have respect for that.”

–Eartha Kitt





Discover amazing abstract art in the imperfect world of Wabi Sabi photography.

Where peeling paint, cracked glass, and rust are the creators.

The art of urbex (urban exploration) opens the mind to explore everything: the abandoned, the decaying, the scratched, the peeling, and the corroded. The journey leads to old vehicles, antiquated equipment, and vacated buildings. 

Shift your thoughts from seeing dirt, grease, cobwebs, and jagged edges. Instead, look at the mesmerizing patterns. My eyes gravitate to these surfaces, and like the famous photographer Aaron Siskind, I want to reveal the emotion of an inanimate object without you having the prejudice of knowing what that object is or was. I use a close-up camera lens to reveal the abstract texture that distress has exposed.

Wabi Sabi photography nudges us to connect introspectively.

Dilapidated forms hold a sense of mystery and the secrets of time. Vintage surfaces speak through their abstract textures in swirls and symbolism. Are they at the end of useful life, or are they a living surface still developing? Can we truly call them imperfect? Who is to judge? Enjoy a parallel experience of seeing an object and perceiving concepts in these intriguing Wabi Sabi photographs.

Take the mission to discover in this collection of texture photography: intimate landscapes, ocean vignettes, wildlife, objects channeling the great artists in history, disguised cultural statements, storms, star systems, and the universe’s sense of humor mocking my doodling style.
