Kimberly Poppe

"What is meant by 'reality'? It would seem to be something very erratic, very undependable-now to be found in a dusty road, now in a scrap of newspaper in the street, now in a daffodil in the sun. It lights up a group in a room and stamps some casual saying. It overwhelms one walking home beneath the stars and makes the silent world more real than the world of speech-and there it is again in an omnibus in the uproar of Piccadilly. Sometimes, too, it seems to dwell in shapes too far away for us to discern what their nature is. But whatever it touches, it fixes and makes permanent. That is what remains over when the skin of the day has been cast into the hedge; that is what is left of past time and of our loves and hates."

I have always been slightly obsessed with trying to find these moments of "reality". This has led me to both meditation and photography.

The focus of my photography is on seeing. I try to see clearly and make images based on fresh perceptions.

There is nothing to think about in my photographs. They are the opposite of conceptual. I hope that they give people's minds the space to rest, even if just for a moment.


Kimberly Poppe was born in the United States but has lived in Europe for the last 15 years. A long-term student of Tibetan Buddhism and a meditation teacher as well as a photographer, her work has been greatly influenced and inspired by The Practice of Contemplative Photography by Andy Karr and Michael Wood. Kimberly's photographs can be found in private collections around the world.
