  • Hail Mary, Her Photographs are Full of Grace Analogue Lifestyle

    Hail Mary, Her Photographs are Full of Grace

    She is young & talented and talented & young. Her photographs would undeniably justify these reversible descriptions. Seeing her stream of film photos entrances you into a dreamlike fantasy: inspiring, magical, vivid, and sometimes haunting in a lovely kind of way.

Mary Robinson, you make our eyes swoon.

  • Berlin, the City I Live In Locations

    Berlin, the City I Live In

    It was in 2007 when I first came to Berlin and it was love at first sight! Unfortunately, I was only there for a 10-day vacation. Still, memories of that trip never failed to excite me even as I wandered around in my old hometown. As fate would have it, a year later, I met the love of my life, who, coincidentally, was living in Berlin! So I made the big leap - I got married and moved to Berlin! And to this day, that still holds the top spot as the best decision I've ever made!

  • My Analogue Life: Taking Lomography to the Masses Analogue Lifestyle

    My Analogue Life: Taking Lomography to the Masses

    It happens with movies. It happens with fashion. It always happens with music. And now, it would seem, analogue photography is poised to take its place in mainstream popular culture. All of the indicators are there: the recent growth and expansion of the brand, the embrace of analogue among influential stylemakers and Hollywood hipsters, and the increased name recognition of cameras like the LC-A, Diana and Holga. (My Mum even pointed out a small item about a Holga as a holiday gift suggestion in a Canadian magazine that’s, well, rather Mumsy.)

    My Analogue Life: Vintage Style Inspires

    We each draw inspiration from different sources. For some, it’s a gorgeous view or pretty sunset; for others, it’s the people around them that feed their creativity; and for others yet, it’s a mood thing. For me, more often than not, it’s an object or a piece of clothing that triggers the idea for a photograph — or sometimes an entire series — and that certain something is almost always vintage.
