Merton, On Photography…

” Thomas Merton distinguished between his serious work and the documentary uses he made of photography. In the latter, he captured faces, and places and events as any good photographer would, though with his own personal characteristics of wit and compassion.

“In the serious work he was captured by the play of light, the ambiance, and the inner life of things he photographed.” – John Howard Griffin A Hidden Wholeness
