Screen Shot 2015-04-14 at 3.55.41 PM

Yesterday Justina Blakeney, the woman behind such genius as a "Face the Foliage" and the awesome blog The Jungalow, released her first book: The New Bohemians. It's spectacular. The photography is by Dabito, who is AWESOME, and it features 20 homes of New Bohemians. If you've ever liked a photo of a houseplant, moroccan rug, weaving, suzani, ikat.... etc etc etc... this book is like crack cocaine. I mean, I'm kind of a preppy New Yorker who in my own imagination is artist living in Venice, but this book makes me want to start making cement planters (I'm gonna DIY some, I already bought the … [Read more...]

Sir | Mario Testino

image_g9_o_jpg_607_north_1160x_white

“The way men are seen in photography, in fashion, and the way that men look at pictures of themselves has changed in recent years. It is a subject that has come into focus: The masculine image, a man’s personal style, changing attitudes to the male face and body.” — Mario Testino It definitely has, hasn't it? Masculinity, in all its forms is a fascinating subject. I feel like the line between masculine and feminine is ever blurring and these captures are intimate in a way that feels feminine or delicate, but with men as subjects. Does that make sense? It's lovely to see the male form be … [Read more...]

#Absurdistsummer | Tear Out Print Book!

DSC_8459

Woohoo! I've been wanting to do a "book" of some sort for a while now. At a certain point, it's just what one does, isn't it? This is a book, in which all the pages TEAR OUT, for framing! Just a fun little project I've been working on ;)  You can buy the book HERE. A few months ago, I was sitting with Erica for one of our yearly "What should we do with our lives?" chats, when she came up with the idea of a Tear Out Print Book. Basically, a book of photos in which all the pages tear out, for easy framing. I loved the idea; most of her ideas are brilliant. I know I've torn photos out of coffee … [Read more...]
