snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes,
silver white winters that melt into springs,
these are a few of my favorite things.

Jewellery & Vintage
Having the opportunity to see firsthand such historic beautiful garments was extremely exciting. It was incredible to understand that the fine fabrics start to deconstruct and decompose due to the treatments that was done on them when they were made.
The beading, embroidery and vintage lace were particularly inspiring to me. It reminded me of the detail and perfection that was so important in the 18th century and it left me thinking how the fast fashion culture of the 21st century has destroyed the historical beauty vision.

His photography delivers such a sharp and abstract approach to capturing his subject. The strong contrast between the black and white makes these photos very powerful and endearing.
