Find your Lense: Rich Life & Primals
Welcome to Phlourish
Whether you are a seasoned photographer or a beginner, there is one core attribute which is essential for cultivating your artistic vision: the way you see the world. We believe that two psychological concepts, The Rich Life & Primals, offer photographers emotional lenses which they can apply towards their work.
Primals introduces the idea that we matter in the world and that understanding how and why we matter is of great psychological benefit to each of us. The Rich Life introduces us to the idea that the arts and the humanities can expand our perspective of the world. Together, both of these concepts can help photographers build empathy for other people– especially at a time with so much conflict and alienation happening around us.
