It’s always a fear of mine that when you meet people you admire that they’ll be douche bags, and then I’d rather not know how they are in private so that I can still enjoy their blog/movies/books/designs without the niggling knowledge that they are jerks. Last night I waited on Mr. Newton and if it wasn’t for his camera case I wouldn’t have noticed him right away and then of course from there he was wearing his summertime uniform that makes him so recognisable. He was lovely and super nice and makes me like his blog even more than I already do. I love the girls he photographs, the common thread seems to be that his subjects have personality, confidence and unique style and it always inspires my own closet. Here are some of my favourites he’s posted recently.
I only recently discovered Hedi Slimane has a blog, gorgeous photos that make me want to shoot 100% in black and white, go on a road trip, get a new tattoo and go to a shooting range…
This must be heart a photographer week…some of my favourite images from Hedi Slimane.
This image of Jamie is around the blogs at the moment, but I had to repostThe combination of her strong back and spinal tattoo are beautiful to me.Such a sucker for long locks – Kirby and AnnThe eyes have it
I’m kind of fascinated by hands, since they are more difficult to disguise in terms of wear and tear they tell so much about the owner. Being someone who uses toxic glue, who sews on industrial machines and serves cocktails on the weekend. Mine say more than I’d like -like, girrrrl, get a manicure.These hands in particular belong to M. Pierre BergéAmber, who is just as striking in real life
My trip to Madrid was such a treat in many ways, one is that it’s been so long since I’ve spent time in Europe. When I lived in London every few months a couple of us would pick a destination and take a long weekend. Florence, Paris, Athens, you know, just really casually…central Europe just has this charm that is unequaled by anywhere else.
I have to say then that I was really jealous looking at one of my friends girlfriends pictures of their recent trip to Portugal. It reminded me of my lazy days drinking coffee, wondering the streets taking pictures, eating cake, looking in galleries and down side-streets and rifling through antiques.
Amongst all the photos she took, I loved the ones of people. Which are the ones I’ve posted below. I’m kind of in awe of anyone who takes good portraits, I know so much is the photogenic-ness of the subject but it is such a talent. One I’m hoping to learn. Especially with this new camera, with it’s inherent genius we should be able to produce something of quality over time…
