Natural Beauty: The Eternal One
A photographic meditation on humanity and nature by Neda Rajabi.
*The quote above is part of the essay “The Over-soul” by Ralph Waldo Emerson (May 25, 1803 – April 27, 1882), an American essayist, lecturer, and poet who led the transcendentalist movement of the mid-19th century. Influenced by romanticism, Platonism, and Kantian philosophy, transcendentalism taught that divinity is imbued in all nature and humanity, and its members held progressive views on feminism and communal living. Besides Ralph Waldo Emerson, journalist and women’s rights advocate Margaret Fuller and writer Henry David Thoreau were central figures of the movement.
