Often we are told to read between the lines, but can we read between photographs? Photographer Brigette Bloom reveals the ethereal and surreal of nature and human body from her raw oeuvre.
Bloom shoots in analogue, and was introduced to the medium when her father lent his camera. Fascinated by the box, the neighborhood was her first playground, loving the little clicks and pulling back the lever manually after each image shot. Thus, her love for film has been carved on to stone. Afterwards, her creative growth relied on her curiosity and experiments.
"I love experimenting because I love the element of surprise. All of photography is like that for me. You just never know how it's going to end up and the unknown is exciting! It still makes me giddy trying out different experiments just to see what will present itself."
Having gone through pregnancy helped her become more aware of the changing stages her body undertook, and nothing more complements her photography better than undergoing a life-changing experience.
Allow us to introduce Brigette and her passion for film as her photographs do the talking.
