In today’s world, the eyes and the soul are assaulted by a myriad of things, causing us to lose our focus, become scattered, and even blinded to the simple beauty hidden around us. Peter Dušek is an award-winning Canadian photographer whose photographs give us a glimpse of this beauty, hidden like a special shell amongst the pebbles on a beach. Inspired by the philosophy of Zen, Peter places a strong emphasis on balance and negative space and his artistic design goal is “as little as possible, as much as necessary,” giving an abstract quality to his intimate landscapes. In this simplicity can be found the serenity and perhaps even the happiness that often eludes us.
