Nacho Alegre

Photobucket
Time for some 'fresh new talent'. The Spanish Nacho Alegre to be exact. There doesn't seem to be a lot of information about him on the www so I'll just let his photographs speak for themselves. Speaking of these photographs, they're collected under the very appropriate name Diaries (not sure whether the diary reference is merely a suggestion or their real purpose), and they're absolutely beautiful. There's a lot more where these came from so If you like what you see, I'd suggest you take a look at his website:

København

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Exactly a month from now I'll be on my way to Copenhagen. Since I'll be traveling there by train, I'm looking at 15 hours of immense boredom, (suggestions to kill time, other than reading a book, are more than welcome.) Ofcourse I could just take a plane and get it over with in three hours. But while 3 hours full of suffering and what seems to be endless agony might seem like a fun idea to some of us, I prefer to keep my feet steadily on the ground. So by train it is.

Anyway, not only will I be visiting Copenhagen, I also intend to pay a little visit to the lovely city of Mälmo. Which means that after this trip, I can add both Denmark and Sweden to my 'countries I've travelled to-list'. How very exciting! (Seeing that list grow is seriously one of my great pleasures in life) Obviously I hope this trip will enable me to take a lot of photographs, because after all, that's what I like to do best. And if I happen to come across some nice clothingstores, so be it.

Silent Spring

Yesterday I discovered the most interesting, or should I say genius photographs. They were taken by Lina Scheynius, a self-taught photographer from Sweden, who's currently residing in London.

Mert & Marcus for Miu Miu


Photobucket

I think I've just fallen in love with Miu Miu's new campaign images. Not only because of the beautiful clothes they feature, but merely because of the brilliant photography. Mert & Marcus seriously did an excellent job at this one. I particularly like the colours, the contrast and the overall Alice in Wonderland feeling. And ofcourse, Kirsten is just perfect for Miu Miu.

Shake it like a polaroid picture

Sia's video for her song breathe me must be one of the most brilliant music videos ever created. The combination of 2,500 polaroid pictures and beautiful music is terrific.
