Spirit of Photography
|Spirit of Photography with Master Fine Art Photographer Marlene Neumann. Exploring her own inner light through the camera has been Marlene Neumann’s mission and purpose for over 35 years. This South African Master Fine Art photographer has made it her life’s work to elevate photography to a means of spiritual expression. Her approach is beyond the rational mind, it is Creative and Philosophical. |
“I photograph what I feel and not what I see. Everything is energy, everything has an essence” is Neumann’s philosophy.
She believes Photography is magical, it is a bridge between you and the universe. “When you are tuned in energetically, fully aligned with whatever you’re photographing. The Universe communicates with us. Our photographs are reflections of what is going on in us emotionally,” she explains.
Her images come alive in your presence as her work evokes an emotional response in the viewer. “The lens of your camera is an extension of your eye, your eyes are an extension of your heart,” shares Marlene. This stimulating presentation is guided by the Master herself. She takes you on a journey deep into the world of Intuitive photography. Her contemplative approach teaches you fresh insights and a new way of seeing.
Marlene is on the cutting edge of Fine Art Photography and her teaching and philosophy has inspired thousands of students photographs and fundamentally changed the way they “see”.
