Photographer Profile: Roger Baut

Roger Allen Baut, MA, has been a long-time photographer who has only recently begun to develop his photographic work into a collection of what he terms: Contemplative Photographic Art™.

He defines "Contemplative Photographic Art™" as, "certain photographs which may lead the viewer into a calm, thoughtful, peaceful, and/or lightly meditative state. In this contemplative state an individual may connect, gain access to, or come into resonance with his or her own inner being, and from this connection, perhaps gain insights that will assit that person on their Journey of Life on Planet Earth."

As you view each photograph, take your time and see what lies within the realm of each image, as each image holds a message for the person viewing the picture.

Perhaps a photograph will rekindle memories from one's bygone days, lead one to experience a period of relaxation, or guide one to an insight that will manifest while viewing the photograph. This is the intent of Roger's "Contemplative Photographic Art™."
