hundreds of kilometers up the mountains. bruises and burns and dusks and dawns. heavy eyelids. heavy rainfall. heavy thunderstorms. misty hazy milky mornings. lazy swims in quiet rivers. all of it. am i really here?
the sweat was literally streaming down my face (you can see a drop right above the right corner of my mouth - there ya go, for the sake of oversharing, schweaty upper lip YES) and yet i was SO determined to get a good photo with that good wall on that lovely rooftop. holy mother of pringles. i've done vinyasa yoga in 35 degrees celsius but this was a whole new level of working out. guess i can now add 'feeling dizzy after photography' to my list of things i did in indonesia 🤷🏻♀
sunlight kisses, heat embraces. adventure awaits and the moon lingers somewhere above the other side of the world. constants. variables. thoughts of friends on other continents. warm heart. warm body. everything warm. everywhere.
it feels like years ago when i did this shoot, back in amsterdam in a fairytale house in the heart of freezing amsterdam. it was so good, working with @thegreenlabels_com - contributing to a business i completely, wholeheartedly support and believe in. i am so grateful for the opportunity and creative freedom i was given. thegreenlabels.com is an online shop that makes sustainable, ethically produced fashion accessible to all, providing amazing and unique clothing made under fair working conditions. you can shop on their website according to what you value most and find selections of vegan, locally crafted, organic and zero waste items. bikinis made from recycled fishnets, wonderful high quality fabrics, organic dyes - they've got it all. @roosmol and i shot a dreamy, summery campaign featuring some of the items - you can find some of the shots on thegreenlabels.com and instagram account. i can't wait to do more of this! my mind is overflowing with inspiration and motivation for future work and art and more greatness to change the world. please remember that every tiny step, every sustainable purchase, every second hand skirt or recycled bottle or wooden spoon is a step in the right direction. the worst thing you can do is nothing- even if it feels like your efforts are unnoticed or too small to change the world. all of us together and our tiny little attributions to a greener future accumulate and change te universe. we are responsible for our future and the future of our wonderful world 🌙
