The Beauty of Buddha
Distributed for Hirmer Publishers
The Beauty of Buddha closely examines an extensive collection of Burmese Buddhas through a series of powerful photographic meditations by German photographer Hubertus Hamm. Beautifully staged, Hamm’s photographs reflect—both artistically and personally—on the meaning of each individual figure to offer a series of contemplative photographic responses to the immense spiritual and metaphysical questions that confront all human beings. Each carefully composed image in turn constitutes a compelling and intensely personal dialogue between the photographer and the ancient sculpture that serves as deeply meaningful subject.
