Drama on the Streets

Miss Moss // Drama on the Streets

i felt like these deserved a re-post! you see, i have been going through my archives and i rediscovered these Period Drama vs Street Style colour comparisons that I did way back in 2011 for Hila (you can see the original posts here and here). i never actually posted them all here so i thought i’d share. and, damn, i did pretty well if i do say so myself! Hila and I share a great appreciation for period dramas, she even wrote a book about screen adaptations of classic literature. she also wrote this marvellous post for me in 2012 about the locations of some of her favourite period films.

Her

Her

if there is one movie you need to see right now, it is Her. i knew the vague premise of the film before i watched it, i might even have been a little skeptical, but i chose not to watch any trailers or read anything about it before viewing. that is why i’m not going to tell you anything about the story or give you my opinion on the characters or what develops – i just want you to watch it. Her is visually stunning, the art direction and styling is wonderful. it is just an absolute joy for the eyeballs. go see it!

Missy Prince

i’m doing this thing now where i’m picking random dates in my archives and looking up people i posted about years ago. Missy Prince is a Portland based photographer, originally from Mississippi, who i have followed on flickr since, well, i discovered flickr. i posted about her 3 years ago – and her work still amazes me. in between her more personal work and some beautiful landscape imagery she also captures a world that, in my head, i only know through american road trip movies, or shows like friday night lights. bits and pieces of middle america, vignettes that remind me of the work of Stephen Shore or William Eggleston.

Heidi Swanson

i am a huge fan of Heidi Swanson’s amazing food blog 101 Cookbooks – and i’m sure you are too – but i only recently discovered her beautiful photography (other than her food photography, of course). she is a super talented lady, with a new york times bestselling cookbook and wonderfully curated online shop Quitokeeto. check out more of her photos at flickr.

Love Music Wine & Revolution

love music wine and revolution is a great source for vintage lovers and visual aesthetes alike. the author shares screencaps from her favourite old movies, which is pretty handy for those of us who need vintage film recommendations (i for one haven’t seen any of the films featured on the blog) and, you know, they’re pretty great to look at. she runs a very attractive similarly themed tumblr too.

The Comparisons Project: Cracks

Hila picked Cracks for our next comparisons project – a film I have been meaning to watch for ages but just never got round to. i actually find myself watching less and less films these days, as any available tv time is dedicated to my series addiction (cough game of thrones cough). so this was a great “excuse” to indulge in some eva green action – one of my favourite actresses who has a knack for playing seriously unhinged characters.
