Vibrancy


Model Ming Xi (Ford) for magazine V Magazine #71, Summer 2011 by fashion photographer Nick Knight and hair by Petros Petrohilos.


Nick Knight  really impresses me. I'm a strong believer that it takes a lot of skill to do motion blur in a way that gets across the precise emotion/feel for the shoot. Plus if you have a look at his other work you'll see what I mean by impressive. In my own opinion, most notable, his work with Alexander McQueen for Devon in 1997. 


Now I think I'll go back to listening incessantly to 80's synth-pop - my preferred choice of background noise for the stillness of winter nights.

Curiosity


The work of Turkish photographer Nazif Topçuoğlu. He creates wonderful and slightly unnerving scenes with a great use of interesting angles.

Nazif says of his work "When employing the representations of youth as imagery, one has to deal with the issues of gender roles and male gaze. In these photographs, unlike the more common examples, a respectful stance towards the female has been taken. The subjectification of the female youth as a gender-free ideal, inevitably involves her intelligence, beauty, energy, and struggle as the major concerns of this work."


I really love photography like this that make people the main visual point by placing them like you would a vase or fruit. In doing gives us a certain insight into the subjects, because the photographs are so interesting. 


And really, tweed, pleated skirts and socks with school shoes are so fun.

Rodarte killing it again. Seriously liking this label. Complejo and Dona Rita both being great photographers. I've already featured Rita's work last year and Complejo is a Spanish photographer who's work I will probably do a post on as his werk is fantastical as well. 

What a pretty, bland day it is today. Fierce mild.

Rapture; end [of] times





None of us got chosen by Jesus? What a shame.

Fantastic fotographer Tim Walker did a shoot for W featuring Miss Johansson and quite lovely I think you will agree. Mr Walker is a really talented bloke; mixing in fashion and landscape meets crazy fun. Get acquainted.


Out of Ana Locking's new co-llection I would say the pink/red number to be my favourite. If you glance for just a moment you almost think she has big spiky shoulders.

Time flies! I hope everything is well past internet land. Been into pretty things this past week. And surprisingly I liked a few of the garments from Chanel's Resort show. Really not liking the shoes though, don't know whats the deal with that. But maybe this has to do for my hatred of flip flops.

I'm not sure but this new indie film the future, it looks kinda silly but I like how the girl in it does one dance every day for thirty days. Looks pretty. Anyway see what you think.


Its winter/autumn but I'm feeling more like spring.
