Stanley Bloom is a photographer based in Paris. We are featuring images from one of Stanley’s latest series ‘Whispering Souls’:
“Set in Quebec during a blazing summer, Whispering Souls is a body of work that seeks to trigger our consciousness, the awakening of the senses and the spirit, while experiencing life. Thanks to the abundance and accessibility of natural resources, especially the forest, people from the area enjoy a special connection to the land. Therefore, it came to me that I needed to pursue my quest for highlighting the presence of nature, which always grants me peace of mind as this instinctive feeling awakes my spirit. When shooting, I think it is important for me to free myself from a pre-established concept and escape from overthinking the process, to be able to release my mind, leaving all the space necessary in me to accommodate fresh images without judgment. I drive my attention to what surrounds me, and then begin to be aware of these little things. Moreover, traveling away from my habits has also played a role in stimulating my perception, helping me come out of my comfort zone and renew my eye. On the fence between urban and wilderness, within a quiet backdrop, Whispering Souls is an ode to the present moment where you can listen the murmurs of life”.
