    My Dog Maya

    Saying goodbye to my companion for the last 7 years. Last week I said goodbye to my dog, Maya - my companion and a lady. Maya was 14 years of age, a respectable age for a dog. The last year was not an easy one for her, getting old and all the difficulties and discomforts coming with it.

  • The Day My Analogue Life Started

    The Day My Analogue Life Started

    As of today I can’t imagine a life without analogue photography. It’s not only one of my favorite ways to relax and escape from daily life, it’s also a way to show that same life and share it with others. Also professionally, I prefer working analogue and it helped me create my ‘handwriting’ during my design study. When did this start? Not even that long ago, in a place not so far away…

  • When Subject Meets Photographer: Self-Portraits!

    When Subject Meets Photographer: Self-Portraits!

    Sometimes when there's nothing interesting going on and nobody else is around, it's hard to find a subject to shoot. But don’t be put down; there is always you! A self-portrait can be made anytime and anywhere. You don’t need to be super vain--no, I think everybody can use some self-portrait time every now and then. What you get is a very interesting collection of “selfies” which is a nice way to look back and capture the most intimate moments of your own life. Nowadays, it’s even easier with everybody carrying smartphones and digital cameras, but nothing beats a good analogue self-portrait.

    The Narcissus Effect

    So many photos of our friends, family, pets - we're pretty much their paparazzi. So, sometimes when we catch a glimpse of ourselves in the mirror we think "wait a minute", what about me? Self-portraits are a meditative art and gateway to self-reflection. And though it's less 'personal' nowadays, as it's so commonplace and simple, it's interesting to see how passion, equivalent to Rembrandt, for self-portraiture is still alive with film-photography.

    My Day in Analogue: My Spring in Fuji Instax Mini

    A few years ago, I thought I could use a photography boost so I figured out a project for myself. For the entire spring, I took one picture a day using only Fuji Instax Film. Check out my season in analogue.

    Monday Moodboard: Oh, To Fly Once More

    My possibly solo travel to Bangkok and Penang early next year was all I could think about all weekend; all the planning, booking, researching, and list-making got me thinking about nothing but flying off somewhere once more.

    Lomography X ReStore Living: Personal Photo Pairings Rumble

    As you shoot each roll of film you'll most often take a handful of snaps on the same day and even in the same spot. In that duration your frame of mind would have elapsed much. Perhaps it's a sunny day and you're enveloped in a daydream while you're snapping your beautiful friend across the café table. We want you to share your personal photo pairings with us and in essence, the essence of a memory.

Save your thoughts for when you see her photos after the jump!
