What we're about

Holding a camera in our hands can help us to slow down and discover beauty everywhere, even in the most ordinary and unlikely places. How does that happen? We meet up to experiment on ourselves and explore this phenomenon together.

Who is this for?

This is a group for photographers, philosophers, meditators, and anyone interested in attention, curiosity and the perception of beauty and meaning.

What do you need?

You’ll need a camera. But it doesn’t matter if it's a fancy DSLR or a phone camera. This is about using our eyes and minds differently.

What do we do?

Each time we meet we will explore a different way of looking at the world, based on a philosophical thought experiment. These are mini-contemplations with the potential to hack our default perception settings. The results are variable, which is why it’s intriguing to swap stories and photos at the end (usually over a coffee or hot chocolate!)


Our meetups will all be in and around London.

Ground Rules:

• We spend more time looking, than clicking
• We look alone, even though we are in a group
• We use cameras (phones in airplane mode)
• We check out the photos later (no reviewing or deleting)
• We are serious about not taking ourselves too seriously!
