So I have mentioned this before, but I’m obsessed with fruit and plant photography. In high school, I won a photography award for a series of images I took, comparing parts of the human body to plant life, lining the images up next to each other to highlight the similarities. I just love how the colours and texture appear on a film roll or digitally created in a studio. In LA I stopped by the Robert Mapplethorpe exhibition at the Getty and one of the rooms was dedicated to his botanical photography and they were just so. beautiful. and kicked my obsession back into gear. A lot of them were just up-close macro images of orchids – the stems, the leaves, the flowers and the textures look so interesting and sexy.

I’m a busy busy bee these days finalising my last hand in’s and BA dissertation for university. I’ve specialised in branding and social media this last year, something that is becoming increasingly interesting the more I read about it; there’s so much psychology involved and strategic planning behind good accounts. On top of this I landed a great placement doing digital strategies and social media and it’s sooo relieving that I feel excited to go to work. Sometimes you think you love doing something and once you get it it feels different, grass is greener etc. but thankfully that’s not the case! Soon, job hunting starts and I have to start adulting (yikes).
Anyway sun is shining and in just a week I will have officially graduated uni! Any tips for a new graduate?

I wanted to share this editorial I discovered on mon Dieu’s Instagram page, and also recommend that you have a browse around their website. It’s an inspiring page (founded in Norway), full of editorials, art, photography, music and blogs – really worth checking out!
As for this editorial, I’ve always been drawn to a kind of clinical and sickly aesthetic vibe (I was obsessed with Girl, Interrupted as a teen). It’s a nice juxtaposition to have these clean and sterile environments but have the focus be on fashion and these beautiful people. Also, it’s a bit ironic and humorous; these shallow possessions can drive you nuts!

During the time I was retouching these pictures, a special moon was about to appear in our universe, one of the two kinds of Blue Moon. The moon has a deep impact on me physically and mentally and all this came together at this time. I can´t really explain why but I think it has something to do with me being a daydreamer and highly sensitive to atmosphere and I love to wander around empty streets at night; there is a certain peace and everything stands still.
