Dylan is my nephew and he is growing up so fast. Now he is 18 months old and turning into a proper little boy. I can't stop myself from taking photos of him whenever I see him.
Dylan is the son of my boyfriend’s sister, so technically he is my nephew and he is (in my somewhat biased opinion) the cutest nephew anyone could ever have! Although he only lives a half hour drive or so away from our house, we don’t really see enough of him and his parents due to all of us having busy work schedules etc. He is at what I think is the funnest age – starting to run around, talking total jibberish and trying out new things for the first time, such as the huge slide at a play centre, or tasting new types of food he has never been allowed to eat before. Plus, it helps that he is a super well behaved child and never really cries or whines, making him a total pleasure to look after.
Thank you Dylan for being so cute and for letting me take photos of you – I will be taking a lot more as you grow up so I hope you continue and pose for me!’
Sometime between 6,000 and 10,000 years ago, a boy in northern Afghanistan was born with a gene mutation that hindered his eyes from producing melanin and thus from turning brown. He had blue eyes. If you see someone with blue eyes today, he is a descendant of this unlucky fellow. I am one of those weird folks and apart from feeling like a mutant and being Angelina Jolie’s secret sister, I am sensitive to light like an ISO 6,400 film.

Dora Kontha makes the familiar worthy of a tribute. She frames icy weather or glinting water so that it looks boundless, more than a spread of pretty blue. Analog photography, her medium of choice, makes these everyday sights as intimate as memory itself.
