the sudden stillness of deep interconnectedness

Given that the editor of this site is indebted for much of her understanding of the dynamics of creativity to a noted physicist – David Bohm – it’s an unbounded delight to welcome a physicist with a passion for photography to the artisans’ gallery.

Andy Ilachinski‘s eye ranges over a vast and varied array of phenomena – he tends to leave his photographs untitled, preferring to group them instead into portfolios with titles such as Tao, Micro Worlds, Abstract Glyphs, Mystic Flame, Ice Abstracts, Synesthscapes, and various geographical locations.

On his page, he shares with poetic nuance the way his knowledge and understanding of the micro-universe informs his practice of photography, ultimately delivering him into “deep interconnectedness”.

 

Andy Ilachinski - Micro Worlds portfolio

 

I am, by training and profession, a physicist, specializing in the modeling of complex adaptive systems (with a Ph.D. in theoretical physics). However, both by temperament and inner muse, I am a photographer, and have been one for far longer than my Ph.D. gives me any right to claim an ownership by physics. Photography became a life-long pursuit for me the instant my parents gave me a Polaroid instamatic camera for my 10th birthday. I have been studying the mysterious relationship between inner experiences and outer realities ever since.

  1. One of my favorite photograpahers on a favorite website. What a combination. I have been a fan of Andy’s work for several years and it continues to be an inspiration to me.

  2. What an extraordinary photograph…the particle and the wave! I can look at this for a minute, or for hours, and either way… become happily informed. Thank you Miriam, for the introduction to Andy’s work.
