A Walk Among Gods

A Walk Among Gods was an early inspiration for Justified Hype – a combination of human-centered multimedia project and artistic collaboration. Most simply, A Walk Among Gods is photographic responses to poetry – a way to capture the image the poet has planted in the photographer’s mind. The series was originally published at awalkamonggods.tumblr.com beginning in 2016, with the photography of Arash Afshar. Now, we invite our Creators to collaborate as part of this series.
