A summer afternoon shoot to escape the city ended up exploring Berlin East-lakes and brought us this series of photos with gorgeous Lulu. “When we arrived after a walk in the Grunewald forest, Lulu went directly to the water, and from this point on, we decided to have fun and play a 20 minutes movie that is now frozen in odd vignettes.”
We are having a crush on Alina Lee alias ohthumbelina for a few years already. Her self-portraits are somehow different. Not smoothly polished, but multidimensional. Melancholic, profound, thoughtful and always simply beautiful. We are happy to see that she released her first self-portrait book and sat down with her to talk about true freedom, imperfections as another marketing tool and finding happiness.
One Night Only, started in October 2017, with the purpose of regularly holding pop-up gigs and parties with young local rappers and DJ´s in Hong Kong. The founders, Erica Kwok and Allex Chan, are two twenty-something young adults and they started their concept inspired by Kiev rave parties.
” I started bringing my camera with me everywhere just in case there’s an opportunity to take an interesting photo. I don’t even know what it is exactly that I think is interesting, but it’s usually something unexpected and possibly overlooked by others. It’s an organized artistic crime. It’s a subtle form of rebellion to embrace eccentric interests in creating, what I perceive to be, beautiful images.”
I met him during my travels this summer in France. I was staying in a tiny village outside of Paris and he was living at the house I stayed at. We explored Monet’s garden together and something began to kindle. Back at the house he told me to put a record on and asked me to dance. It felt like old-fashioned romance and fireworks. We ended up spending the next two weeks together.
If you ask me to describe the whole year and all things I learned during it I’d choose the word “responsibility”. It’s quite funny that the more the world develops nowadays and becomes more dynamic, the distance between a “kid” and an “adult”, “childhood” and “adulthood” becomes larger and the transition between them harder and more tangible.
“I made a trip to clear my mind.” explains Andre Josselin. “We did 9 states and almost 10.000 kilometers in 3 weeks including Wyoming, Montana, Nevada, Colorado and California. We saw Rodeos and Roulette Tables, the endless roads and empty spaces. Witnessing Deers and Elks and Bisons. Eating a lot of sandwiches and hot dogs. We saw infinite skies of stars.
