We want our readership to experience the stories we share and feel inspired to open to attending to their own vulnerability, personal growth and healing. If we have to be the change we want to see in this world than we all need to do our work and attend to our own evolutions and I can’t say enough about the support it takes to do so. Bohypsians mission to be a source for this support and a platform for the voices of many communities.
BOHYPSIAN started as a impulse to take action for a better world by artist, activist and award winning photographer, Michelle Magdalena Maddox in 2010. Since then Michelle often referred to as Magdalena, has developed a strong fine art and commercial photography business while taking action for environmental issues including, "Japan: 311" a portraits series of Japanese opinion on nuclear energy after the Fukushima Disaster in 2009 and "Saving The Pollinators" a campaign to pass a bill to ban neonicotinoids and distribute native seeds for pollinators in 2014.
Timing is everything and as the course of our nation and planet takes us to the critical edge Magdalena sees no choice but to follow her dreams and make the documentation of living activism and strong voices for change and healing brought to light in the print world.
