In my life I have a couple of those friends, even when you haven’t seen each other in three years, it’s all as ‘back then’ when you see each other again. My university friend Julia visited Cape Town with her husband Sascha (nothing better than honeymooning in SA :) and it was a blast! I miss you guys already. In the next few days I’ll share the shoot we did with them.
I love this quote by Air (read in Monocle, issue 50, vol 05).
What we do isn’t really work. We’re just excited to do it. We never understand the concept of work – giving your time to someone else? You say that you’re playing an instrument, playing the piano – not that you’re working on it.
Merry Christmas everyone! It’s very exciting… the first time in years I spend it again with my family back in Germany… and they didn’t know about it so there was and is much excitement. If you haven’t got all your Christmas presents yet, no worries.. how about this awesome car wash calendar? I love it.
We shot our neighbour Jo. She needed a portrait of herself for the magazine Fairlady that will feature her and her blog Pretty Pretty in a coming issue. It was a rainy day and not really the time for an outside shoot, but we were lucky to get a few great shots of designer Jo in our hood District Six. More pix of your neighbour Jo here.
I found these awesome images on brainpickings, have to share this with you.

What is it about Dutch photographers that makes them so visually eloquent at capturing the human condition? From Jeroen Toirkens comes Nomad — a fascinating and strikingly beautiful visual anthropology of the Northern Hemisphere’s last living nomadic peoples, from Greenland to Turkey. A decade in the making, this multi-continent journey unfolds in 150 black-and-white and full-color photos that reveal what feels like an alternate reality of a life often harsh, sometimes poetic, devoid of many of our modern luxuries and basic givens, from shiny digital gadgets to a permanent roof over one’s head.
Since the beginning of time, nomadic people have roamed the earth. Looking for food, feeding their cattle. Looking for an existence, freedom. Living in the wild, mountains, deserts, on tundra and ice. With only a thin layer of tent between them and nature. Earth in the 21st century is a crowded place, roads and cities are everywhere. Yet somehow, these people hold on to traditions that go back to the very beginning of human civilization.” ~ Jelle Brandt Corstius“
Beard is Austin-based photographer Matthew Rainwaters’ quest to document the finest of these hairy specimens and the curious characters who tend them in a stunning series of stark, visually articulate portraits. Alongside the formidable chops, bristles and whiskers, ranging from the classics to freestyle fare, are essays by prominent competitors that crack ajar the door to a fascinating subculture.
