Vagabond Souls by Stephanie Cornfield

“The soul takes flight to the world that is invisible but there arriving she is sure of bliss and forever dwells in paradise.” – Plato


The journey does begin to flutter in midway when entities tend to begin their quest and are hurdled by unexpected encounters. The journey might terminate or might get chosen for eternity or digress to again follow a novel identity. Nevertheless the genres of journeys sustain to persist and to accumulate manifold experiences. The peripatetic and ever changing temperament of journey is the cause of the entitled show Vagabond Souls a series of photographs by artist Stephanie Cornfield that forms a part of Percept Art’s participation in the Focus Photography Festival, 2015.


The course of photography presented at Percept Art is not only a trail but a trace of journeys undertaken by eminent and popular personalities depicted in her photographs. The stances of the doyens, their elite yet subtle dispositions, the reflected demeanours symbolise their momentary contingencies as well as assertive characters, sharing common passion and profession.


“From an early age I felt challenged by colour, motion, trends and especially faces. People say of my pictures that they are very cinematic, dreamy, and they capture the mystery of the moment” – Stephanie Cornfield
