I want to be the first person to say, “Who cares what this was shot on.” This is a great piece of visual art with a very important message to the world.

I have worked along side Philip Bloom on a few projects and his passion behind the camera is unyielding. In fact, he has this “thing” for humanity. He loves people’s faces and like a fingerprint, he recognizes the uniqueness of each of them. He has this amazing way of capturing human beings and the environment in which they live. This can only be realized or explained by watching his films and short narratives. He is a master of visual storytelling and I am an avid admirer of his work. He inspires me to go out and shoot the world around me with a camera and lens.

Philip just posted the final edit of his India shoot he did a few months ago for Greenpeace. I watched it and felt that this was the most compelling piece of video I have even seen by Mr. Bloom. I wanted to share it with you, even though most of my visitors are big fans of philipbloom.co.uk already!
