Tasha Tudor

this post began when i came across images of Tasha Tudor, a children’s book illustrator whose nostalgic throwback lifestyle (she lived in a replica of a late 18th-century New England farmhouse) included spinning flax into linen to make her own clothes, milking goats and sleeping in a featherbed “with her nose pointing north”. according to her…

The Islands

Claudia Corrent is an Italian photographer whose project Insulae (The Islands) offers a different perspective on Venice. i have been lucky enough to visit Venice twice – though never ventured beyond the main island. it’s interesting to see it like this, more from a local’s point of view (and minus…

Kate Funk

happy new year!! we are still away on holiday, but i am easing myself back into work in between reading and napping and eating too many of these guys. this time of year is always kind of bittersweet to me, i don’t want holidays to end but i am also excited…

Petros Koublis

Petros Koublis is a photographer from Greece whose relationship with photography began in 2000, after dedicating many years to painting. he developed his own style through constant personal exploration and his website shows a series of interesting themes that you can explore here. i’m most taken by his photographs of…

Janet Delaney: NYC 1984-1987

this past weekend i was having a discussion with friends about how great our parents and grandparents family photos were, compared to the endless and often crappy iPhone photos we haphazardly churn out these days. when i look back at photos i took pre-digital days (i still used a film camera when i…

An Island

Luca Moretti is an Italian photographer who was born & lives in Tuscany. this past summer he took a series of photos on Elba, an Italian island close to where he lives. it took me straight back to holidays i have been lucky to have in Italy and elsewhere on…

Small Town Girl

i was lucky to discover Elize Strydom just as she was about to embark on the South African chapter of her ongoing photography project Small Town Girl – thanks to Jessica for tagging me in her first post. Elize is Australian, but has roots in SA (as you can probably tell by her name 😉)…

Pampa

i have been receiving Pampa’s newsletter for the better part of a year, but am yet to blog about them – time to remedy that! Pampa was co-founded by photographers Victoria Aguirre from Argentina and Carl Wilson from Australia, who source handwoven products directly from the hands of indigenous Argentinian weavers. Every year we explore some of…

Heather Evans Smith

Heather Evans Smith is a photographer whose conceptual series Seen Not Heard explores her multi-faceted relationship with her young daughter. the first image i featured above is just SO amazing! i think it’s so interesting to explore & interpret various stages of your life through such a creative medium. this is going to be…

Double Tap: Matthieu Venot

there must be something so satisfying about cropping a photo into a symmetrical candy coloured composition. whatever the process of Matthieu Venot is, his compositions are clearly beautifully considered. Matthieu is a self-taught photographer from France who already has a huge following on Instagram. you can see his work there or on his…

William James Broadhurst

when looking through the photography of William James Broadhurst all i could think was the light! THE LIGHT! they really are extraordinarily beautiful photos, even though the subject matter is seemingly pretty mundane (actually my favourite kind of photography, and the mark of a great photographer). William is Australian, and very…

Gordon Parks

i have featured images by photographer Gordon Parks many times on the blog, but have never done a post dedicated solely to his work. which is weird, considering he’s such a legend. he was the first African-American writer and staff photographer at Life, the first African-American photographer published in Vogue, and the…

Abandoned Love

these kind of banners have become ubiquitous online, popping up on every party related Pinterest board (we even had one at our own wedding…) but what if you turn the concept around, and make the message something not so positive? that’s what 20 year old Georgie based photographer & digital…

Ed Freeman: Western Realty

have you guys been watching The Last Man On Earth? it was my first thought when i saw this series of digitally enhanced photos by photographer Ed Freeman (whose early career was in the music industry – working with acts like The Beatles, Don McClean and Carly Simon – whoa!). Western Realty features scenes that you…

Double Tap: Tomas Wells

“thank you Instagram, for introducing me to talented people i would otherwise never know about.” – i feel like that needs to be said every day. because that’s how i came across Tomas Wells, who takes great photos in Cape Town and beyond. follow him! he has a website, too.…
