I’ve recently become a big fan of the work of a wonderful young photographer, Carey Kirkella, whose limited-edition photographic prints bring a contemporary sensibility to the ancient symbolism of Feng Shui.
Beautiful works of art, Carey’s Feng Shui photography portfolio captures the Five Elements, aspects of the Bagua and other Feng Shui concepts that are sometimes easiest to convey through pictures rather than words.
It can be difficult, for example, to find images that represent the Earth element, but this photo does it beautifully:
Its strong horizontal lines, earthy color and sandy texture are all reminders of Earth’s supportive, stabilizing qualities, especially appropriate for the Knowledge/Self Cultivation, Marriage/Relationship and Center areas of the Bagua in your home or office.
Here’s a beautiful example of the Water element:
This photo perfectly embodies the essential qualities of Water: spirituality, reflection and clarity. As a bonus it includes a bit of the Fire element (the fish) and even some very soft Wood in the seaweed as well.
Carey’s limited-edition prints are available to purchase in a range of sizes. Be sure to check out all the gorgeous images on her site. I hope you find some that perfectly capture the Feng Shui ideas you’re ready to anchor in your space.
