joSon was born and raised in the Philippines. At age ten, he was sent to live with his mother’s family in Vietnam, where he continued his education in a Buddhist Temple. “I thought it was my calling. The truth is: I never left the monkhood. I just left the temple.” The inspiration for his work is clear in joSon’s portraits, landscapes, and still life images—meditations on the nature of beauty in life’s simplest forms.
