In this unique photography book, photojournalist Kit Kittle travels around the U.S. with a statue of the Buddha to capture it in unlikely places. These 70 photos are paired with a series of simple philosophical quotes. The presence of the statue changes the feeling of every location, and the quotes, regarding meditation and compassion, bring one close to the source of the Buddha?s simple ideals. The Buddha?s image of steadfast composure seems to put today?s fast-paced lives on pause, and gives the reader moments of wonder. Enlightenment awaits you.
