Description
 
Buddhist China in Picture and Poem

Breathtaking and unique, Where the World Does Not Follow reveals the treasures of an almost-hidden China. Photographer Steven R. Johnson and acclaimed poet and translator Mike O'Connor uncover a world rarely seen by outsiders - even as they capture its everyday beauty. O'Connor's sublime and spacious translations of poems from the T'ang Dynasty resonate in modern hearts, while Johnson's evocative photographs portray a China that seems almost unchanged by the passing of centuries. Poems by ancient Zen and Taoist hermit-sages coupled with crisp yet almost dreamlike images show us the living heritage of an age gone by.
A hymn to nature, art, and the human spirit, this luminous volume captures the 'sthetic, literary, and spiritual roots of Buddhist China. Let O'Connor and Johnson guide you to a place few can imagine and fewer still visit, a realm of reclusion and self-realization - where the world does not follow.


Where the World Does Not Follow, Translated and Introduced by Mike O'Connor, Photography by Steven R. Johnson, Wisdom Publications, 143 pages, 60 black and white photographs, $24.95
