"One should not only photograph things for what they are, but for what else they are." – Minor White

My name is Cameran Ashraf.  I enjoy photography as a medium through which I "grow down" into a greater depth of soul in my life.  For me, photography is a way to connect with my intuitive and feeling Self.

I use film and digital cameras.  A large amount of my photography is through pinhole film cameras, where I have no viewfinder and must follow those mysterious whisperings of soul in creating a photograph.  It is a wonderful and rich experience.

My initial foray into photography was focused on solar astrophotography, and I named my site Heliographic after an early device used to photograph the sun.  My work has broadened significantly beyond our local star, and I am happy to share it with you.
