Jim Lind is a New York-based photo-retoucher, and also creative director of HOWL, a group of traveling photo collective.
Attracted by photography thanks to his father’s passion, the discovery of this new world will allow him to represent his thoughts better than reality. Whether they are real or entirely invented, his images reflects his personal experience and are an echo of his imagination.
His serie “City of Exile” shows dark landscapes, sometimes destroyed or uninhabited. The luminous characters, such as the personification of hope, emerges from the dire straits in which they are, adapting to the new conditions imposed to them. These clichés offer to us a beautiful life lesson : A way to prove that in all situations, including the most inextricable, the human, thanks to his nature, will be able to show a lot of courage and adaptability.
