All things in life are impermanent. Zen of Photography is a ‘Day of Mindfulness’ using photography as a medium to re-discover the beauty of our surroundings and observe changes at the press of a camera’s shutter. No photography experience is required from the participants. However you should bring your own cameras or smartphones (on airplane mode) for taking photos.
The workshop, co-organized by Pause & Breathe and Kadoorie Farm & Botanic Garden, is a journey for participants to experience Zen of Photography and to learn that life is full of beauty if you see it from different angles.
