“There’s often beauty in unexpected places…”

This months featured Artist is Joy Jordan , who I find inspiring. She captures simple but beautiful images of nature that transmit a sense of peace and self reflection.

It was therefore no surprise when I discovered that as well as being a talented photographer ,Joy also is a teacher (and student ) of Mindfulness.Knowing this Joy’s images make perfect sense, as they convey emotion through beautiful details,textures and colours all captured in soft light.These are some of the qualities which drew my eye towards Joy’s work.

Joy describes her work …..

“My photography is more than a creative outlet,it’s a mindfulness practice.It’s a way to pay attention and stay open. I find solace in the natural world. I look for light,texture and details.There’s often beauty in unexpected places. I try to tell visual stories that have an emotional impact. It’s persistent yet patient practice. I make mistakes, learn something, and try again.Each day I remind myself :Slow down, pay attention,and be kind.I hope this comes through in my images ”
