What is direct experience? What does it mean to be aware and how is it possible to even define awareness? What does it truly mean to be alive in every moment? Short Stories of the Transparent Mind personally and directly explores the nature of perception through a number of short photographic narratives using visual experimentation. The vividly depicted stories are the work of award-winning photographer Joakim Eneroth and will be printed in a limited first run of 1,500 copies.
