Product description

In this book, restorative justice pioneer and professor, Howard Zehr, offers busy professionals an opportunity to slow down, heighten their imaginations, and renew themselves, all while exploring the world of photography. Restorative justice pioneer Howard Zehr is also an accomplished photographer. He begins his latest book with a confession--"I have written this book in part to encourage myself to slow down, to heighten my imagination, to renew myself while I gain a new view of the creation and the creator." With this book, Zehr makes a gift to anyone who would like to couple photography with seeing and thinking more deeply. In each chapter he offers a Purpose, a Problem, and an Activity with a camera in order to "practice mindfulness." You'll not need a fancy camera, but if you have one it won't hurt. Zehr's chapter-by-chapter exercises are aimed at heightening visual awareness and imagination--all while doing good and working for justice. A title in The Little Books of Justice and Peacebuilding Series.
