Ruy Carpenter's Art and Photography

Ruy Carpenter has been studying photography and digital art in depth since 2006. Based primarily in the Fiji islands, he has also traveled around the world, camera in tow.

Wherever his travels take him, Ruy's heart always remains at Adi Da Samrajashram, the hermitage sanctuary of his Spiritual Master, Adi Da Samraj. All his photographs and art are a celebration of that relationship.

In his own words:

"What always amazes me about photographing anything is the possibility to lose yourself in the process. When I feel and participate in the moment to the fullest, the technical process of taking a picture falls away, and even the lines between the objective world I am photographing and my own subjective process begin to blur. Regardless of how much I may have prepared, the best photographs are always sudden happenings, when the present moment and the intended vision meet in a mysterious conjunction that reminds me of the bigger picture of Reality in which both I and my subject inhere. This was always the demonstration and enjoyment of Adi Da's Company, and I engage this art form as an ongoing celebration of that relationship to Him."
