I’m discovering myself again through photography, through shadows and light, through longing and lust. I’ve never thought of myself as a very creative person before, but now I feel all these streams of consciousness awaking in me and all I want to do is listen. Continue reading
I’m back from Easter break and getting ready for the Orthodox Easter now, in fact I haven’t done a single thing about it, but I still have tomorrow to dye some eggs and make Pasca, the traditional Easter cake I hadn’t even tasted until I started making it myself. Haha! Continue reading
In my desire to cope with my severe winter apathy and in my longing for the mother country, however far and cold and unfriendly, I stumbled upon the photographic work of Dan Cristian Mihailescu and I found some deliverance.It’s the deserted landscapes that appeal to me, you get the feeling that when winter sets in, human presence recedes. In its desolation, the beach and its rocks seem to cling to life in a desultory manner. I long for an empty field, where winters come and go and leave only traces of seagull steps in the snow.
If you haven´t had the chance to see the exhibition yet, you should! I´ve been meaning to go for ages and I´m happy to say I can finally check it off my list! It closes on the 15th, so it was now or never. I´d never been to Henie Onstad, mainly because I don´t drive and I never go out of town if I don´t have to, unless it´s for the big abroad!
But Kusama was impressing! Of course, we could have picked a better day, Sundays are busy and there were queues and kids everywhere, but then I´m not the very artsy type, so I didn´t need ages to see everything, I was happy to take in the atmosphere and get dizzy from all the polka dots. 😉 Continue reading
On Sunday evening we came home from Montpellier, France, to 10 degrees, everyday worries, bills to pay and my very own zoo garden, as my father puts it. 😉
Although living in Norway for 15 years will definitely affect your perception of style, Parisian apartments remain the embodiment of chic for me. A sucker for all things bourgeois and at the same time a lover of clean lines, I find myself drawn to quirky, eclectic abodes, somewhat eccentric and at the same time where the owner is not trying too hard.
Daphné Desjeux and Dorothée Delaye are the interior architects who renovated this 110m2 place and I think they did a marvellous job! Take a look!
Tomas Werner photographed this cute little dog outdoors, using the incredibly photogenic Miami as a backdrop. The dog is willingly posing as a real model. Werner gathered his pictures in a book called “A Handbook Dog Walkers”. Take a look!
Steve McCurry, an iconic contemporary photographer from Philadelphia interprets the subject of reading as a universal activity. The pictures are ever so beautiful in their everyday composition, they portray the joy of reading, be it a newspaper, a religious book, a novel or a magazine. Enjoy!
I recently discovered Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic whose works embellish the streets of Johor Baru and Singapore. They´re a fresh breath for the city and they convey a sense of humor most of us lack. 😉 These ones surprise children or animals interacting with elements of buildings or other nearby objects. I find them genius! 🙂
Margarita Kareva is a frisky addition to the photography world, from Russia, with love. She´s only been doing it for 3 years, but her portfolio is amazing already. She uses female characters to depict princesses and witches, adding surreal details to her fairy-tale pictures. Enjoy!
