one of my new years resolutions should probably have been to stop complaining about the heat. i live in africa, i have done for 28 years, i need to get over it. WELL. that will never happen. i actually day dream about the cold. i look at pictures of girls…

Anna & Marek

some more beautiful photographs from Anna & Marek Strachan, who i previously posted about here. Using digital and analog cameras (35 mm and 120 mm film) we try to take advantage mainly of daylight and to avoid extensive image postprocessing. all photographs by Anna & Marek Strachan

Bumper Fashion Special No. 28

i used to do these posts called the bumper fashion special, usually on a sunday, as a round up of great fashion i’d been seeing around. the last one i did was in october 2010 – i think it’s time for a comeback. CC KUO SS/2012: dieppa restrepo luca rose…

Butter Your Popcorn

i have a special treat for you. truth is it’s a special treat for me too. i have been nagging my boyfriend to make an extra special funk music mix for the blog for some time now. when i say nagging i mean, i make him coffee and shower him…

Verrier by Reed & Rader

okay, i’m not sure how any other lookbooks this year will top this animated gif lookbook for Verrier by Reed & Rader (and it’s only 11 days in…) i had to choose a few of my favourites just to keep the bandwidth down – i apologise if it loads slowly…

Marianne Breslauer

i rediscovered this series of photographs taken between 1929 – 1934 by german photographer Marianne Breslauer thanks to lauren’s pinterest. i’m strangely envious of these women who are long gone. Marianne was a close friend of the Swiss writer and photographer Annemarie Schwarzenbach, whom she photographed many times. She described Annemarie…
