Summer has passed so quickly, I still can't get my grasp on it. I spent much time working on my final thesis and tweaking all the little details and tomorrow I'll have my thesis defense and hopefully that'll be the end of my thesis-related bad dreams (really.).
Flowers, flowers, flowers
Roses, sunflowers, flowers whose names I don't even know: they were all very inspirational for me throughout the entire year! I think that part of the reason lies in rereading textile designer Tricia Guild's book Inspiration, given to me for my birthday by a friend years ago (thanx!).
Shooting on the beach
I mostly go to the beach in the evenings: I'm not a fan of sunbathing and in the evenings there are less people as well so I can have my peace. The sea is a fundamental part of my life and I always eagerly wait for summertime to take photos on the beach!
Meeting with friends and nice new people & travelling
Everyone comes to their hometown during summer (having beaches at hand doesn't hurt!) and it's always nice meeting old friends! I've travelled to Perugia in August to visit fellow photographer Alessio Albi, and dear Adi Dekel joined us a few days later: shooting with Rebecca Rocchi, patting horses, watching grumpy llamas (and learning the llama song moves!), playing Playstation (no more P.E.!), meeting Rafael Xypsilon, eating good food prepared by Alessio's mum and listening to his dad's history lessons about the area.
What's better than reading a good book? Or two? Or five?
I liked The Silkworm by Robert Galbraith (I do a better job at dividing J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series from her other works now that she writes under a pseudonym), Lena Dunham's Not That Kind of Girl had its funny moments and I'm currently in the middle of reading Sylvia Plath's The Bell Jar and Marina Fiorato's The Botticelli Secret.
The Royal Tenenbaums can finally be removed from my watchlist - I loved the movie!
On the Pula Film Festival was an amazing Serbian movie entitled Next to Me that we couldn't stop talking about!
Bea Szenfeld is a Swedish theatrical fashion designer who creates amazing whole-body pieces out of paper and cardboard. ''Haute Papier'' is a collection designed for Spring/Summer 2014., but I haven't seen it until about a week ago and I think it's worthy of sharing!
Bea also made garments worn by Bjork and Lady Gaga (for her video G.U.Y).
Just WHO doesn't love winter scarves? If there's one thing I can't get enough is the warm feeling of a colorful scarf wrapped around my neck during the coldest winter days. This year my mum is crafting me a long orange one! Take a look at these ones suggested by Refinery29!
Alexandra Avakian, a photographer working for Time and the New York Times was at the scene in 1989. during the fall of the Berlin Wall. You may or may not believe in the story she wrote (although I see no reason why she would lie about it), but the astounding photographs she had taken there are bone-chilling!

Hi everyone! :)
I’m so excited that I finally started my blog, something I’ve been meaning to do for the past year.
Getting through college (Academy of applied arts; I still need to major next year) taught me one thing: you learn more from your fellow colleagues and friends than from professors.
Furthermore, you learn more on your own; be that exploring the internet, watching tutorials and, of course, making your lazy self get off that chair and go practice into THE REAL WORLD (this sounds scary).
I’ll be covering a lot of topics in my comfy little space of the net here, which can be divided into these categories:
1. behind the scenes photos + videos (yay, videos!)
2. showcasing my latest projects
3. thoughts and opinions about various photography-related stuff
… and I’m thinking about conducting interviews with photographers I admire, but let’s leave that for now as a Plan B, just an option I’ve been thinking about.
Blogging is rewarding in terms of self-growth, but also time-consuming.
So, to paraphrase Albus Dumbledore (#HarryPotterFan): ”I’ll continue writing this blog in the hope that you will find it entertaining and instructive.”
