I believe art creates possibilities to open your mind and expand your consciousness.
Shifting my perspective has made an immeasurable difference in my life. Before my diagnosis and subsequent medication for major depressive disorder and PTSD, my thought loops were one dimensional and skewed toward self-sabotage. It was easier to give in to my thoughts, which only reinforced my negative assumptions. But I have learned (and practiced) new ways to SEE — the world, the truth and my self. The ability to see things from another perspective gives me the strength to believe in myself.
Shift your perspective, shift your life.
Look up! Bathed in the golden glow of a nearby streetlight, the leaves on this palm tree seem to be lit from within. Standing underneath, I could feel my own internal glow! Use the scarf as a reminder to shift your perspective.
Lindsi Hollend is a fine art photographer living in Toronto.
Lindsi has a unique perspective of the everyday moments and objects in the world, be it the allure of nature or the magnitude of the space that surrounds her. She is fascinated by texture, layers, colours and contrast — all of which are abundant in her work. Photography has given her the true gift of experiencing the world as a keen and eager observer and it is through this medium that she challenges her viewer to appreciate the power of how personal perspective shapes their own lives. Through the act of looking outward to capture these unique and evocative images, Lindsi continually feels compelled to look inward to illuminate how each truly reflects and effects the other. Her work challenges her viewers’ notions of how their inner landscape might effect their outward vision of the world.
