In 2011, Soumana bought a camera to practice her long aspired love to photography. For the next 3 years, she spent time shooting till she fell in love with the conceptual work of famous artists: Tim Walker, Claire Rosen, Brooke Shaden, Sarah Moon, Erwin Olaf and Lara Zankoul.
Influenced by creating stories, photography to her is more than a passion but a reflection of words, dreams, fears, romance and the mirror of the imagination where the secrets are exposed and the fantasies are reality.
Her personal impression of the photos is linked to association of words and quotes. .
Soumana is a strong believer of an inspired life. She believes that creativity can touch other people’s lives and who of us hasn’t fallen in Iove with a Disney character we watched or imagined the fairy tale we once read!
In her own words: "Photography is the language of nostalgia."
Her advice is: “Whatever inspires you, build on that inspiration. Do what you love to do and what fascinates your heart. Unleash your talent. Be dedicated and experiment. Don’t dwell into successes or failures. It’s all a step forward. Reflect passion in the life of others and enjoy your creative journey.”
