There’s something about this series by Russian photographer, Alice Calypso that really drew my interest. Poised as an almost Alice in Wonderland through the streets, this reminds me of a lost and more simple world. Where the 90s are still in tact.

Underneath all the production elements of a photoshoot there is a raw quality that can’t be denied. That’s just what Italian based photographer Gabriele Giussani had in mind when shooting this series of model Alena all around Milan on various film cameras. Let’s take a trip through the viewfinder of an analog shoot with a Russian girl who has a romantic gaze.

For the past few months Belgian based photographer Maxime Fauconnier has been working on a photography and video project, Quiet Glow. It’s first being shown here on the site and throughout the early dawn and into the night, a glimpse of youth culture is portrayed.
Watch this atmospheric video that moves through the many stages of glowing light.
Things might feel like they’re breaking at this current point. Here’s an influential visual guide from inside my mind.
I recently discovered the work of London based photographer, Katie Silvester. In the lush areas of the location the vibe is just perfect, with just a bit of 90s nostalgia.

One of the things that is catching my eye lately is the personalities behind the camera the stories they have to share. This brings me to photographer Abdul Kircher. I just discovered his work a few weeks ago and just began delving more into his own story.
He was born in Berlin and is now based in New York City. His photographs have a raw quality in capturing the pulse of the streets and a personal depth much in the vein of Nan Goldin. Abdul himself has an interesting look as well. In a recent article I read that his eyes began to change colors when he was young, thus giving him one blue and brown. Makes for an interesting gaze toward the camera lens. Lately, he’s become a subject in front of the camera, as he’s now represented by Re:quest models in NY for special commissions.
Here are some photos of his interesting and multi layered style, which is definitely reminiscent of the early 90s style that I’ve come to find in almost every area of new generation.

Sometimes when there is change there is a feeling of hitting a sort of low or bottom. When you rise out of that fog, you become a chameleon and adapt to the change. There are some changes going on here but eventually the waves will calm, and a new dawn will approach.
I’ve created this inspiration post to go with an alternative music video by The Vines that I happened to find on the internet (I haven’t seen it in years). So watch the video and scroll down this weeks inspiration patch.
