Werner Erhard Photo Experience

This essay, Werner Erhard Photo Experience, is the second in the septology The Werner Erhard Experience: Conversations For Transformation receives its two hundred thousandth view with the publishing of Werner Erhard Photo Experience.

I am indebted to Dennis Caudill and to Wernher Krutein and to Lyn Malone and to Kenneth Yamamoto and to Wayne Williams and to Anita Lynn Erhard and to Randy Green and to Fred Ortiz and to Robert Buelteman Jr and to Keth Luke and to Angelo D'Amelio and to Phyllis Ford and to Tom Fitzsimmons and to Silent Sensei and to Daniel McAlpine and to Michael Schropp and to James Wilson and to Sudan Bey and to Ray "Scotty" Morris and to Mehul Mehta and to Ashish Vidyarthi and to Commander Subroto Das, Indian Navy and to Steve Zaffron and to Gurmeet Khurana and to Chaitanya Chaddha and to Suzi Pomerantz and to Jo Fielder and to Elizabeth Handy and to Yousuf Karsh and to The Friends Of Werner Erhard and to Breakthrough Racing and to Symon Productions and to Screen Media Films and to Der Spiegel and to The Werner Erhard Foundation and to Harvard Kennedy School's Center For Public Leadership and to Bussa Studios and to Werner Erhard and Associates and to The Eranos Foundation and to the University of Rochester's Simon School of Business and to San Francisco Chronicle who inspired this conversation, and to Anita Lynn Erhard and to Elizabeth Russell and to Barry Colton and to Clare Erhard-Trick and to Wernher Krutein and to Mehul Mehta and to Commander Subroto Das, Indian Navy and to Gopal Rao and to Sudan Bey and to Cindy Peralta-Bey and to Cheryl Ulrich and to Judy Golden and to Robyn Symon and to JoAnne Bangs and to Rajendra Malik and to Bill Jersey who contributed material.




The spread of photographs of Werner in this catalog covers a range of years. Many people will remember Werner in the former years. Some people have only met Werner in the latter years. Most people who've experienced Werner face to face first saw him somewhere in between.

These photographs show Werner's appearance. Appropriately, Werner's appearance goeswith  transformation (as Alan Watts may have said). But, not shown in these photographs, it's Werner's speaking  which brings forth  transformation, Werner asserting "Transformation shows up in my mouth.".

This catalog of photographs of Werner shouldn't be construed simply as a compendium of snapshots. In fact, if that's how they do play to you, then I would have failed in my intention to make them available.

If you're awake to it, you'll see the face  of transformation everywhere in this catalog. The face of transformation is eternal, timeless, out of time. It's been around forever, yet it dances with us freshly and enthusiastically in all these new successive moments of now, playing, teasing, calling forth.

There's no significance to the order in which the photographs are displayed here. Some are in the order in which they first appeared in these Conversations For Transformation. Some aren't.
