“Passion and love.” The world of Sally Mustang

“How much happier would we be if we spent more time moving with the force of life. Dancing, singing, making love, feeling sexy, walking in the woods, swimming at the beach, looking at flowers, watching animals, telling stories and gazing at the moon, rather than always pushing ourselves along a path that we think is leading us to where we want to go?” Sally Mustang is an artist, yoga teacher, writer and free spirit. We have been in love with the inspiring beauty already for a long time and we are happy to had an insightful talk with her about places, love, best life lession and sex&art.

“The only way to find real sustainable happiness is to slow down.” A talk with Alina Lee

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.

The stories of the people behind the art: Michelle Berj #7

” 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.”

A summer romance

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.

I thought I knew what freedom was

When I was 15, I had my first taste of freedom, as I concert-toured and sang my way through Australia that summer. My first break from a toxic environment that I’d been stuck in for the longest time. Even though it was just a short-lived summer, it was the happiest time of my life, for a very long time.

An ode to my youth

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.

Yournal of a Model Chapter 14: “Your journey never ends”

One of my agents used to ask me, “who is your audience?” when talking about social media and I would brush her off. “Who is my audience?” I’d say it over and over before shrugging my shoulders and posting my next image, not caring too much as to who I was reaching or who was trying to reach me. Until it got away. My audience? Jesus, was I writing a college application essay?

_TOY_ punk, drugs, and mental illness

Do people remember the documentaries that Penelope Spheeris made? I remember The Decline of Western Civilization III about punk rock culture. Where the line between homelessness and punk rock is blurred, the aesthetic of the movie is the loneliness and survival it shows the unforgiving side of society.

I don´t want to be a mass-tourist.

I love traveling, and I used to travel a lot. But taveling in many ways has almost become like a capitalist monster, never full, until it has eaten up all around it. Seeing how crazy the whole world has gone about traveling, masses of people invading places sucking out their charming authenticity and leaving a trace of rubbish and disregard for the locals, Does that mean I can never travel again?

#5 Yogi “An artist´s life.” The stories of the people behind the art

“I’ve been thinking for months now how to dive deeper within myself to reflect in my art. With that, I have asked myself a range of questions, tried to step out of myself to really see other’s perspective and really just allowed myself the space to remain honest about my process. One of the biggest questions I receive from my audience is, “why women?”
