Bluebell and Luna

When we were in Wiltshire, a month and a half ago, I had planned a complicated music video inspired photoshoot, with changes of scenery, dynamic poses and a text around body image and beauty standards. Indeed, as we carry only backpacks on our nomadic journey since October, I decided not to bring makeup. This is…

Where stories can lead

I moved to London because of stories. I started yoga because of a book. I started parkour because of video games. In summer 2017, I had been living in London for a year and a half and I was at a yoga studio in Camden Town. My tummy had been hurting and I needed to exercise….

Splitting Image – 1

All the pictures were taken a year ago by Marco Vinagre in Kings Cross, London but coincidentally, my hair looks nearly the same colour today 🙂 Splitting Image – 1 I put my mask on, crawl carefully through the torn, cobwebbed…

What is this feeling?

Some words are deemed to be untranslatable in other languages, or “unique” to their languages of origin, but the feelings behind them are usually not. That’s why we tend to borrow these words or create new ones, to shortcut what could be a lengthy explanation into reusable bits. A while ago, I wrote an article…
