The second book in the series, “Through a Jungian Lens,” is a photographic and poetic journey through the prairies of Saskatchewan, Canada.
The unique form of photography found in this book was the result of a “happy accident” or “synchronicity” as it is called in Jungian psychology. While working on the first book of the series, I was busy taking off and adding lenses using adapter rings also known as bowers. By placing the telephoto lens on top of the regular lens using a set of three different bowers, I found that at a certain point in the telephoto process, I was able to capture round images rather than the traditional rectangular images associated with photography.

The first book in the series called “Through a Jungian Lens” is called “Swamplands and Soul.” The book’s photography features the swamplands of the Yucatan province in Mexico, in the area next to a small fishing village called Puerto Chuburná. The text is oriented to Jungian psychology with a blend of both prose and poetry. The final section of the book features the poem, “Dark Night of the Soul” which was written in the late 1500s by St. John of the Cross, a Spanish monk.
The book was written to reflect upon the issue of depression in midlife and to provide a sense of hope to those who find themselves in this situation.
