“As a singer/songwriter/creative, I’m always looking to push my own creative knowledge and disciplines. The beauty of collective oneness inspired this editorial and how it can create a domino effect with an unstoppable force. All of my film photography is under the alias of @iso4.0.9 and is in collaboration with my vocal producer/songwriting partner Darlington Peters (iso4.0.9).”
The universe is made up of vibrational frequencies and energy. This energy transferring from one to another making the people we surround ourselves with over time, parts of us in some way. What we think, we become and as the people we surround ourselves with usually help to shape our thoughts, mindfulness helps us know who to open our energy to as well as who will drain us. Giving time and energy in the space of uplifting as a collective creates a domino effect that can have the potential of being unstoppable just by the pure force of a vibrating at a higher frequency together.
