In the realms of artistic expression there are so many ways to get your thoughts and feelings out. I’m not going to bore you with listing examples here as I presume you didn’t grow up in a cave, which even if you did would lead me to presume that you have at least scraped a little wall carving here and there. Some lucky people find themselves able to express themselves in many different ways, and once in a while a maverick comes along and combines all their talents into one.
Cue Jim Kroft. Musician / singer turned photographer turned videographer turned storyteller. Jim Kroft is a very very talented man. I would know since according to my mother I’m the most talented man alive. Jim has taken his love for music, photography, moving pictures and storytelling and combined it with his passion for people to create his ever growing cultural sensory soup titled: “Journeys”. Each “Journey“ Jim goes to a particular country / region and allows himself to be swallowed into the culture which intern he then portrays through an extraordinary mixture of visuals and sound. He has an inexplicable way (I believe it may be witchcraft) of connecting with total strangers who in turn tell their stories through him. Its like an album mixed with a documentary mixed with a photo journal… Well, despite my amazing writing talent (again according to my mother), my description won’t really do “Journeys” justice so you’ll have to experience it yourself.
Jim Kroft I salute you.
