I am currently shielding for twelve weeks and in my home, we have all had to make adaptions to adjust to this pandemic, although, at least, currently, we are all well. I’ve been recalling many of the good words our dear friend and talented artist Carolyn Hall Young shared with us, not least ‘in any given situation we can always choose, hope over fear‘ – let’s all choose hope.
I am aware there are many others also in a similar situation at the moment and I felt it would be a good idea to create an interview, reflecting these times with stunning imagery. This is a new series of interview with mobile photographers and artists discovering what they’re creating and how in these difficult times. Our fifteenth interview is with talented mobile photographer, Fleur Schim from California, United States. This is an interview that embraces the natural resources of nature itself. It’s an example of what the Japanese call shinrin-yoku which translates to ‘forest bathing’. There are a host of psychophysiological benefits to be gained from merely being, passively, in natural versus urban settings. Enjoy!
