Despite the ever-increasing interest in Buddhism, there are few photographic books on the subject out there. "If You Find the Buddha" works as both a celebration of and a wry commentary on the proliferation of Buddha images both here and in Asia. It is priced and formatted as a gift book. Through dozens of intriguing and sometimes humorous photographs, "If You Find the Buddha" is a quirky and meditative tour through the Buddha image as it is seen in both the East and the West. Whether in the heart of Asia or a farm in the American heartland, the Buddha image seems never out of place. As a reminder to stop and live in the moment, it is as appropriate as a charm around the neck of a young Thai soldier as on someone's dashboard. In traditional statues, garden ornaments, toys, jewelry, tattoos, and other objects, the Buddha is seemingly everywhere if one cultivates the proper awareness. By turns beautiful, quirky, ironic, and funny, the images in "Peek-a-Buddha" speak not only to the ubiquity of a religious icon, but to our capacity to be surprised and delighted by the unexpected. As serendipitous as they are striking, these photographs delight and enlighten in equal measure.
