The Hasty Contemplative: Photography and Spiritual Formation

Really pleased to see my article “The Hasty Contemplative: the spirituality of street photograph” is out now in the latest issue of Refresh: Journal of Contemplative Spirituality (Summer 2023). It’s a brief exploration of my experience of photography as a way into spiritual formation and wellbeing. In the article, I talk about some of the people that have influenced my connection of these things.

Students in my masters course “Theology and Media” use digital photography to explore similar themes and topics in their worlds. I’ll be teaching that course again in Semester 1, 2024 as a two block course (Details below).

You can find the current issue of Refresh and more information about the journal and Spiritual Growth Ministries at the web page below:
