Exclusive: Girl by The Window #4 by Francesca Costa

5AIt’s been a pleasure hosting the “Girl by the Window” series by Francesca Costa these past few months. This is the last of the set which followed female artists by the window in London. All shot on Polaroids and film which keeps this at an intimate feeling. Accompanied by an exhibit a few weeks ago in London, and with a video this brings the series to a great conclusion.

Interview with Photographer Stefan Deyn

img099

Get an insight into the raw and beautiful nature of photographer Stefan Deyn’s work. I got a chance to ask him just what moves and inspires him.

Introduce yourself and how you got into photography.

My name is Stefan Deyn and I grew up in Carpentras in the South of France.
I’m 24 years old. These kinds of questions always make me think a lot.  I would love to know when or where it came from. When I moved to Budapest 3 years ago I started to shoot girls.

img674 Do you plan your shoots or is there a more natural approach?

Natural approach and I like to improvise. I keep the moment lively while I shoot the girl.

img581Film or digital and why?
Film! Because is absolutely beautiful, it is where photography came from. I think a moment is even more beautiful when it is shot with an analogue camera.

img601What story are you trying to tell with your photographs.

Really I don’t know! Photography is my way of documenting the best parts of my life, for me is to make a copy of reality and to create something unique in the same image.

img971img678Do you have a favorite subject or muse to photograph?

I pretty much shot my girlfriend and girls for me are incredible.  I really like woman who has presence, the woman that can silence a room when they walk in. It’s not the way they look, it’s their personality that just sucks you in.

You’re based in France, where would you like to travel to for photography if you could go anywhere?

Russia!

Exclusive: Lose Yourself by Anastasia Solodovnikova

5It amazes me how this site really reaches all corners of the world. So when I received this editorial in my inbox from Russia, I fell in love. It’s so great to see the different interpretation of the grunge aesthetic. This series by Anastasia Solodovnikova is another reason why I love the visual arts.

Inspiration: Killing It.

e68a2256c8056124d4856693d1d7ce04

Been feeling super optimistic lately. Almost in a “killing it” type of mood. Things are looking up for 2015. In keeping with that mood, the spirit of youth and the neo-grunge attitude inspired this latest crop of visual information.

Stay Broke Shoot Film : Opening Ceremony Men’s Fall 2015

opening-ceremony-mens03Ok, so this is a bit of a departure form your regularly scheduled programming, but I just had to comment about the menswear collection from Opening Ceremony for Fall 2015. Over the past two years I’ve re-discovered my love for film photography. This includes creating an online community for it.

The designers of OC are great friends with photographer/director Spike Jonze and have since created a capsule in their line featuring some of his projects, outtakes, and contact sheets on their clothing. Noteable would be photos of Immediately this drew my eye. Hello, that contact sheet 3/4 length jacket! Another prominent design is the manipulation of the vintage Kodak logo. From an artistic standpoint and the blending of two mediums, color me impressed. Looks like I’ll be trying to get my hands on more menswear the next Fall season.

Exclusive: Cristina by Cuauhtémoc Suárez

 

r004-024I’ve been following the work of Cuauhtémoc Suárez for a bit, so I was completely excited to get some of his work for the site. As we look through his eye, we can only envision the warm rays of sun of summer that seems so far. I particularly love the ease of the locations that blend into each other all while telling the story of Cristina through the streets.

Style File: Jemina Pearl

tumblr_lt99t1rPcu1qh4bmwo1_500I’m so obsessed with girl fronted bands. Much like the unicorn, they are reveled as such forces of nature especially in such a male dominated world. Which brings me to Jemina Pearl, formerly of the garage punk band Be Your Own Pet out of Nashville. They broke up a few years ago and its one band that I regret not seeing before they split. For a brief while she played in Ultras S/C which I’m also a fan of, but basically she has the sickest style. Now she’s working on some solo projects but for now lets take some visual and sound inspo from this “pearl” of garage style wisdom.
