Just dance – a delicate balance of stillness and motion in these editorials from photographer Sandra Freij
I need to pick up and shoot with one of my toy cameras again. There are some things – okay, a lot of things – that you just can’t do digitally. (Photo from Lomography)
I remember attending an exhibition of fellow animal lover Catherine Ledner’s work exactly a year ago at a DailyCandy event in Hollywood, but forgot to note her name for future reference. I’m glad I somehow stumbled upon her work again.
I would describe Rony Shram’s photography as fierce and edgy, surrounded by an air of classic beauty.
“She looks just like a ‘Lola’”, I remarked a couple of weekends ago as we drove by the billboard for Marc Jacobs‘ newest fragrance, Lola, just across the way from his Melrose location. Then I found that face again in the pages of Elle’s September 2009 issue – still can’t believe Karlie Kloss, handpicked by Marc himself to be the Lola muse, is an American model!
I found the Daisy fragrance much too sweet – even for me – but Lola is described to be warm and seductive with notes of pink peppercorn and ruby red grapefruit. Definitely something I’ll be looking into.
Sarah Sloboda has an intriguing style of photography, particularly with children. Her photos are neither precious nor precocious, the two categories that such portraits usually fall into. I am also a fan of her blog, the University of Sarah, where she documents her artistic experiments behind – and even in front of – the camera.
I found photographer Ramona Rosales flipping through the newest issue ofÂ Flaunt MagazineÂ that I picked up at the Flaunt Hennessy party last week. Her work is so up my alley! I love the ironic, almost dark, sense of humor that lies underneath her photos’ glossy surface.
Even if you’re not located in perpetually warm climates like I am, sweet sunny days can be found in the pages of Urban Outfitter’s current catalog. I have been collecting their catalogs since 2003, and this one is the latest to join the inspiration pile. It is light leaks and flares galore, thanks to photographer Clarke Tolton. I’m not sure when they started crediting photographers or if they always have and I just never noticed, but I’m glad they do.
Although in all fairness, I have no immediate access to a pool or grassy fields. Can’t have it all.
