‘Stories are wild creatures. When you let them loose, who knows what havoc they might wreak?’ A monster calls, Patrick Ness ( a beautiful story to read and watch if you don’t know it yet )
I will probably forever struggle with these greek islands. The way they seem like Disneyland, plastic and just build for tourists. But the colours of Mykonos, oh the colours...💛
‘The word ‘wild’ here is not used in its modern pejorative sense, meaning out of control, but in its original sense, which means to live a natural life, one in which the creature has innate integrity and healthy boundaries. ‘Wild woman’ causes women to remember who they are. ‘Wild woman’ is a metaphor to describe the force which funds all females. These words personify a force that women cannot live without.’ 〰️ What I am currently reading: Women who run with the wolves, Clarissa P. Estés

I don’t normally buy Vogue (or other fashion magazines) - it doesn’t have enough good things to read. Mostly advertising with the same faces in it and images. Images are not enough for me. Seems like a weird thing to say for a photographer but as much as I love photography, images can also be a lie. A beautiful lie but nonentheless a lie. They only show the fracture of a bigger story and sometimes they change the story altogether. That’s why I could never warm up to fashion photography I think. Conceptual photography is not for me. I miss the element of reality in it. Which for some people is exactly why they love it. We are all different and drawn to different things. All that to say that once in a while Vogue Italia comes out with a stunning black and white cover that I cannot resist. The recent one features a shoot with Madonna and her children and it is a s t u n n e r - worth looking at ❤️ Shot by @mertalas.marcuspiggott Also yesterday I found a local designer @nefelilionakihandmadecreations who made these earrings that I also couldn’t resist.
