dipping into my Flickr favourites i had a nice walk down memory lane looking at the photos of Elias Carlson. it was like visiting old friends, because i featured Elias & his wife Theresa way back in 2011 with a things i like right now (remember those!) they have since moved to LA, where Elias is freelancing as a photographer / videographer / designer.
when a professional photographer gets on Instagram, you know you’re in for a good time. today’s Double Tap features Juanel de la Forêt, a photographer from Cape Town currently working in Paris / London with her partner Jesse-Leigh Elford – you can see their portfolio here. she takes wonderful snaps in her day to day life between travelling and shoots. she also has killer manicures. check out their tumblr for easy online viewing or follow WorldofJuju on Instagram.
Erna and Hrefna are identical twins from Iceland who have been photographed every year by Japanese photographer Ariko Inaoka, beginning when they were nine years old in 2009. Ariko intends to visit them every year until they are sixteen years old.
Andrew Jacona spent a month in India in 2012, just exploring and pursuing his passion: photography. he took these photos with a Contax 645 camera using Kodak Portra 400 film. they are SO BEAUTIFUL that they actually make me psychically ache to visit India. Andrew lives in Sydney with his wife Paveena and their two kids. you can see more beautiful photos of Andrew’s family, and his travels, at his Flickr and portfolio website.
you know those beautifully curated tumblrs that have thousands of photographs but you just never ever know where they are from, who took them or… well, any context at all? i discovered the work of photographer Fawn DeViney this way, after seeing one of her pictures and going down a rabbit hole of google image searching to find the real source (i swear tumblr is the bane of my internet existence sometimes!) and luckily I FOUND HER. and then went down another proverbial rabbit hole looking at her lovely photographs.
i have been following Capetonian photographer Kent Andreasen in one form or another for a while, either seeing his work popping up locally here and there or via his tumblr which is just fantastic. he has just spruced up his portfolio site and it’s such a dream to look through. his commissioned work is impressive (especially this one ft Spoek Mathambo) – but i love his personal projects. Silicone Summer, which frequently cropped up on his tumblr, is a personal favourite. such distinctly South African scenes from a unique perspective.
