MY HOMIES RULE TOO: Organic Soul Collective

The ORGANIC SOUL COLLECTIVE is one of my favorite photography collectives. Hailing from France, its members, DORLIS, HERMOSDEF (who was already featured here once a few months back) and KIJA are three of the most gifted photographers when it comes to "catching souls", as Dorlis describes his passion. These portraits are like dream catchers slicing moments out of the heart of beauty...I hope to achieve to channel into my portraits the intensity that these photos are able to capture. Follow the link to see Dorlis'and Hermosdef's page on flickr, and make sure to give them a shout on their myspace page (linked above).
