Time:11am - 6pm

Led by:Sangha Photographers
Description:Eight Buddhist photographers in the Cambridge Sangha have been using their practice to uncover the beauty in the transience of all things.
Their work is being brought together in a new exhibition of 17 images at Cambridge Buddhist Centre which features as part of Cambridge Open Studios.

During a special exhibition weekend, on 22 and 23 July you can meet all the photographers and enjoy browsing the gallery of framed pictures, while enjoying lunch or cake and drinks. Meditation taster sessions and related activities are being run regularly throughout the weekend.

Alongside the 17 photographs that were selected for framing at the exhibition will be a digital display during the weekend showing many more beautiful images that demonstrate the Buddha’s teachings on impermanence and insubstantiality.

A new range of 52 greetings cards by the eight photographers will also be available during the exhibition, from the Centre’s bookshop.

On the Saturday lunchtime, the Wandering Yak will be on the Centre forecourt serving it’s award winning middle-eastern and Indian inspired vegetarian street food for you to eat in the centre. And on Sunday a Sangha team will be serving lunch.

The selected pictures will also be open to the public throughout July and August, Monday – Friday 10am – 1pm, or by appointment 01223 577553. And you'll be able to view them when you come along to the centre for your classes, study groups and other events.

Cambridge Sangha Photographers are Vilokini, Shakyakumara, Upekshaka, John Turner, Ian Collins, Ratnagharba, Imogen Tennison and Jeremy Peters. This Fleeting World follows the success of their first annual photography exhibition in summer 2016, Ordinary Beauty.
