At Howl we talk a lot about inspiration…

Whether it’s the driving force behind developing a new clothing line that transcends outdated boundaries (Stay tuned for more details on this one, *wink*), the last nudge you need to pack up the car and start that road trip, or a breathtaking desert sunset bathed in neon haze…

We’re fortunate enough to encounter it everywhere.

And when I recently had the opportunity to peer through the lense of a Melbourne photographer who is getting into the world and capturing what has captured a piece of his soul, I couldn’t help but feel the familiar pull.

Dean Raphael’s peace-fueling composition, muted vibrancy and subtle storytelling have effectively done what I believe all art should… In me, he’s evoked an emotional response and inspired action.

As I write this, I’m planning my next trip to the desert where I can escape into nature’s embrace and allow my senses to consume her all-encompassing beauty.

So, scroll on.

Explore his Desert Moon series shot in The Big Drift in Wilson’s Promontory and let inspiration take hold.

Let it fill you up, fuel your next adventure and lead you to make an emotional decision that creates your next, most brilliant memories.
