Lovely analogue portraiture by Misma Andrews

Have a look at these dreamlike photographs shot by New Zealand-based photographer Misma Andrews.

Misma has an affinity not only with her craft as a film photographer but also with words. At least, that’s what one can gather just by looking at her online portfolio. She borrows several lines from existing poems and other written work “that have resonated and moved me” and makes them the titles of her albums. One of the shorter examples is:

I don’t love you as if you were a rose of salt, topaz, or arrow of carnations that propagate fire: I love you as one loves certain obscure things, secretly, between the shadow and the soul.

That said, Misma’s portfolio is unique in that whoever’s viewing them is treated not only to interesting photographs but also to beautiful words.

Misma, in her simple bio, identified herself as a “film photographer dreaming about light.” Beginning in 2011 she has been featured in a handful of online magazines, as well as put up her works in a couple of exhibitions. Last year, she directed the music video for the song “Goat” by Wellington, New Zealand-based musical duo French for Rabbits. In addition, Misma also has experience shooting photos of musicians, namely French for Rabbits, Ebony Lamb, Family Cactus, Amiria Grenell, Fraser Ross, Dear Frontier, The Sisters of St. Rupertsberg, City Oh Sigh, Body Lyre, Amy Jean, and Hula Hope.
