21 Photos of Buddha Statues That Show Clever Creativity by the Photographers

Share: 

Photographing statues in a way that makes the final image interesting can be very hard work. With a little thought, however, using interesting lighting, capturing them in the context of their surroundings or getting close to shoot the details can be very effective at making the final result more than just a snapshot. We think these photographs of Buddha statues go that extra distance in creativity and have come out with some great results. Share your own Buddha photographs in the comments!

Nice. Here are some Buddhas made in Cambodia recently, because almost all of the large Buddha images were deliberately destroyed in the wars there in the 70’s and 80’s. One of these was photographed on the porch of a temple in Wat Damnak, Siem Reap, where it sat on the porch waiting to be moved inside, and I think, painted. It is made of a composition material. The wooden, Lanna-style Buddha is a master prototype used in the School of the Artisians (Siem Reap )where international donors pay for the excellent training given to the men and women who are repopulating Cambodia with Buddha images. I made the photos in July 2007. Reply
