Mind-Body Medicine PhD Student Uses Photography to Express Human Consciousness, Connection, and Transparency04/26/2014
Joshua Hendrickson is a doctoral student in the “Integrative Mental Health” specialization in Saybrook’s School of Mind-Body Medicine. Josh spent his youth in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan surrounded by a family of teachers, social workers, nurses, and artists. Growing up with a family of artists taught him to appreciate the arts, a tradition he is carrying on in his unique manner. During his youth he spent time with an Aunt at her art gallery, watched his Uncle direct an orchestra, or enjoyed his grandmother sharing her love of photography. Josh is using photography as his medium to explore the evolution of human consciousness.
Josh is blending photography with what he has learned as a social worker to explore the deeper levels of human connection and transparency through three series in a comprehensive artistic project. The name of the first series is “Transparency Ice Emotion,” a photography project shot in black and white.
