Stay tuned to our online projects. Join our community to stay abreast of #drawingwithlight projects.
This project is aimed at the Instagram user and the happy snapper, to create a conscious photographic moment. In the aim and shoot generation, this project seeks to bring a heightened awareness to your own visual expression, giving you the opportunity to develop your visual language, find your own unique voice and expression in your photographic imagery.
This will aim to improve the quality of our daily imagery, assisting us to take more time and thought into what we want to create. It is aimed at raising awareness of what you are choosing to look at, create and express. This gives you the opportunity to connect with what is the most authentic expression of you.
Each image submitted will be curated and only those images which show your unique eye will be posted on our Instagram feed, giving you the opportunity to showcase your work.
Our visual landscape is populated by the mundane, the superficial and the commercial. It is also populated by politics and other harsh realities on the planet.
Bring Light to the Human Experience offers you an opportunity to present images where you become the conscious creator of the world you choose to see and create.
Here you have the opportunity to construct an image where you:
- capture your soul
- Illustrate the journey
The frame of the camera is like a theatre stage where you get to decide what you allow on that stage, and what you choose to present there.
There is an infinite amount of opportunities to show #beautyoflife and richness of experiences we can have in this physical body.
Present this, find this, create this …
Submit images that bring light to the human experience.
