Wabi-sabi is a Japanese word roughly translating as 'imperfect aged beauty'. It is used to describe a particular philosophy that beauty can be found in one of the following the old, the everyday and the imperfect. And that everything is in a state of transition from or to nothingness. That every scar and wrinkle tells a story to tell, and in that story is a beauty of life.

We don't live in a perfect world, and so a 'perfect' image for me can never have as strong a connection. In terms of photography (and life) the move over recent years has very much been from perfectly lit photos of beautiful models in a controlled studio setting to that of preferring images of real things.

Wabi-sabi photography, then, can be said to be noticing and capturing the beauty ofinperfection, for others to see.

Wabi-sabi in photography can be split into 3 main types - photography of the overlooked beauty, photography of worn and weathered beauty, and adding imperfections to staged images to make them seem more real
