An unfolding dialogue between all forms of being is capable of shifting meaning within contemporary culture and society. The roots of conscious development descend in the intuitive sensibility to perceive the unity between the natural and the humane, removing the barriers to the sensorial so to preserve and reinstall sacredness in a cyclical and spiritual perspective on life.

Dimensions of Being_DSF8832.jpg

Bodhi Shola is a visual artist raising awareness on the interconnection between intimacy, sacredness and nature, addressing acceptance in contemporary social culture.


Informed by her experiences and studies in contact with eastern philosophies, indigenous plant medicine and meditation, the awareness towards a balanced, transversal and ecological development of society is at the core of the artist’s creation. 


It is through the symbolical and dream infused language of the creative medium that Bodhi Shola imbues a ritualistic vision into the themes of the collective, 

supporting equality as well as the preservation of environmental biodiversity and earth-based heritage. The onirical layer is transported into the factual by the means of photographic imagery that documents landscapes for preservation, medicinal plant species and recreates ceremonial practices that address social issues through the lens of delicate intimacy.


The artworks are created using products sourced from local and fair-trade artisanal businesses, supporting women employment and the adoption of 

organic, recyclable and/or compostable materials within the oeuvre itself.

Each element displayed in the imagery is carefully chosen for its meaning, healing properties and its ethical background in relation to the location of the shooting.


Bodhi Shola’s work has been shortlisted for the 2020 Foam Paul Huf Award and exhibited between Europe and United States as part of several group exhibitions. Selected shows include Fotografiska Museum, Tallin and NY; Armani Silos, Milan ; Red Hook Labs Gallery, NY ; Beacon Gallery, Boston ; Leica Gallery, Milan. Her work has been presented in publications including The Ny Times Magazine, Vogue Italia, The British Journal of Photography, Atmos Magazine, South China Morning Post, Dear Dave Magazine and Harpers Bazaar.
