#021 This episode is dedicated to artist, world-renowned photographer, and journalist Layla Love. She is a progressive thought leader, a visionary, a luminary. She uses art as an alchemical process to illuminate the human consciousness. Layla speaks about 'The Rise of the Butterfly' an anti-human trafficking nonprofit organization.
Layla says: "Art paired with purpose loses its ego."
She captures life as a series of adventures and expeditions into the unknown, returning always with a greater sense of what it means to be human. After studying journalism and global communications at Richmond International University in London she realized that visual imagery has the greatest impact on our modern communication process. At 21, she began a five-year photojournalism tour to war-torn and compromised regions with a focus on the plight of women. Love sees a world where art changes people, and people change the world.
Love's photography has been exhibited worldwide including a photographic selection to the White House permanent collection in 2008. She has shown at Paris Photo, Art Basel, the MoMa sponsored AiPAD Photography Show in New York. Ms. Love has participated in over 100 photographic exhibitions. Love's image the Fullest Bloom was adapted individually for over 30 Tiffany & Co. Diamond Showrooms worldwide attesting to Love's attention to detail and mastery of fine art printing."
