There have never been any guarantees in life (except death and taxes, as the old, not-that-funny, saying goes) but that feels even more true than ever today. We are moving through a time that is extremely dynamic, fluid, and always changing.
But notice how the words “fluid” and “dynamic” have a very different effect than words like “uncertain” or “insecure” or even “unsettled.” Sometimes, it really is in how we choose to look at things.
In that spirit of embracing the adventure of the new and unknown, we’re highlighting an artist who enters into his creative process as an exploration. He enjoys the journey without having to know the outcome; the voyage of discovery is itself the end goal.
Angelo Seminara, Goldwell’s newest global ambassador, has been on photo shoots all over the world, in Bolivia, Patagonia, Cuba, Africa and Asia. In each location, the things that make that environment unique—the driving winds, the blowing sand, or the volcanic rock—are incorporated into his final images. His latest collection was shot in Iceland, under the light of a Nordic moon. We can’t wait to see where he goes next.
Virtual learning isn’t new, but with it becoming the primary mode of participating in advanced education, we may need to think differently about our approach to it. As it replaces cancelled or postponed in-person classes, we have some techniques from an artist and educator to help you feel more in the moment, and to assist you in getting the most out of every virtual opportunity.
We know you’re also entering unchartered territory as you work and live in a new reality. In this issue, you’ll find more beautiful and inspirational images, more techniques, and more to move you forward into the great unknown.
