The soul of a collective translated into frames.
SOUL FRAMES is a collective of visual storytellers driven by the vision and commitment of pursuing stories beyond social trends and the contemporary media agenda. Recognising that the concept of storytelling goes beyond the gender of photography, SOUL FRAMES engages in all forms of communication though writing, photography, video, illustration and animation, in the shape of long-term documentary projects, short essays or single frame stories.
Between the founding members, SOUL FRAMES combines over 10 years of experience of independent storytelling for commercial and non-profit sectors and through the creation of its own personal projects.
SOUL FRAMES tells stories. No matter the medium. No matter the tool.
