An Audio/Visual Escape with Photographer/DJ Hannah Faith
They say music can help relax the mind, and calm you down. It can evoke deep thought, happiness, laughter and memories. Music can lift your spirits, take you on an escape of the present. Let you drift off into a daydream, or keep distractions at bay.
Photos, much like music, can evoke the same type of response. Staring at a familiar photograph can evoke nostalgia at the memory of when it was taken, make you smile or remember a silly encounter with someone close to you, or trigger strong emotion.
The blend of these two senses, sight and sound, encompasses the ethos that is Hannah Faith. Photographer by day, DJ by night, Hannah has put together an appealing and elevated online presence. Signed to LA based label Soulection, her music and imagery exude positivity and spirituality.
The UK's Cozy Mag recently did an interview with Hannah and when asked what kind of role music has played in her life, she said, "Life is beautiful, life is a blessing, but I feel I was brought up into a world full of hatred and disease, music puts me in a world where I feel love in its purest form, music unites people, it makes me feel like there is hope. It pulls me out of my dark thoughts when I start to feel negative about the world. Music has always been my healer."
While looking into what makes her unique, I sat listening to her SoundCloud playlist for hours, scrolling through her VSCO and Instagram pages in a state of constant relaxation. Her images, combined with the soothing quality of her music took me on a sensory escape and was the perfect antidote to a long and stressful day.
For anyone looking for a way to unwind at the end of the day, check out her SoundCloud, Instagram, or VSCO, and fall down the wanderers rabbit hole.
