Lukasz Wierzbowski

Lukasz Wierzbowski, aka Neon Tambourine on Flickr, is someone who i have followed since before the blog’s inception. i posted about him way back in 2009, and ever since then i have enjoyed seeing his work pop up all over the online world. you can also buy a book of his work.

Originally from Lubliniec in southern Poland, Lukasz Wierzbowski is a photographer living and working in the historical city of Wroclaw. A master of colour composition and in the use of disruptive patterns, Wierzbowski’s work often explores the ambiguous relationship between the model and their surroundings.

Warm Weather

it’s that time of year again where i do my annual post about summer psyching. this has mostly do with all the imagery i have seen on instagram and twitter and in my blog feed from people who live in, or are currently holidaying in, the northern hemisphere. i know you guys have been experiencing some heat waves – even though the news of the heat wave in London made all of us south africans smile, of course. “temperatures as high as 32c!”

i can’t say that i miss summer, at this point. truth is that we have had a pretty mild winter so far. some days i walk around my neighbourhood and it’s warm enough that people are donning shorts and tee-shirts. that’s just the way it is here, and always will be. i’m grateful for that. what i do miss is that feeling that summer brings – of being on perpetual holiday (even when you’re not). you can get home after work and there’s enough daylight left to go sit on the beach and have a sundowner with your friends, or jump in the pool, or have a gin & tonic on your patio… enjoy the next few months – it’ll be our turn soon.

Li Hui

continuing with Flickr Fridays! i have noticed and admired the work of Li Hui for years on Flickr, so I was surprised to find that i had never actually done a post about her before (cannot keep track after all these years i guess). she is a self-taught photographer who only uses film. something you might notice is that her subjects never show their faces, and she gives a reason for that in this interview:

My pictures never shows faces because I think this is a way of communicating with the viewer. The pictures remind us of our common feelings, secrets, past memories or magical dreams. The people in my pictures are not supposed to be unknown faces, but the viewer him- or herself.

browse her dreamy body of work at her website, tumblr and, of course, flickr.

all photographs by Li Hui.
