Beauty & the Sublime: A Photography Awe Walk on the Bartram Trail

Awe Walk Web Banner

An Awe Walk is a walk within a place of meaning and beauty to encounter something that amazes and transcends, whether big or small. Drawing on inspiration from William Bartram’s reflections on beauty and the sublime, this leisurely 3-hour walk will use photography as a tool for cultivating humility and wonder. Using simple contemplative photography practice, we will learn how to see and respond to the hidden beauty around us while finding new ways to make meaningful photographs.

Requirements:  Photographers of all levels are welcome; even a seasoned practitioner should find value in this unique approach to the medium.
