Mythological Being: bird hybrid

Let’s continue or mythological journey with more pictures by Ghene Snowdon, this time shot in the largest public square in London. Siren If in the previous article I was an undead mermaid, then in this one I’m more of a siren, even if I’m still wearing my dead mermaid dress from BlackMilk. They now tend…

Mythological Being: Undead Mermaid

This session with Ghene Snowdon Photography was awesome, we went to the Temple area in London and shot next to old brick walls, and as you’ll see in part 2 of Mythological Beings, in a garden. She played a bit with black and white and I quite like the results! So why an undead mermaid?…

City Cosmonaut – Part 2

The Moscow-smonaut is back! Through a time portal… So, I’m wearing the same outfit as on Part 1. The location is different though. Here, I’m exploring the city and its urban art, especially Flacon, with Isabelle Touyarou, the photographer. Flacon used to be a glass factory and now it’s a home for creative workshops, shops…

City Cosmonaut – Part 1

Am I a Moscow-smonaut?… The photoshoot in Moscow with Isabelle Touyarou was otherworldly. I love snow and interesting places, so you can imagine I was very pleased we shot in some amazing locations. There will be more pictures coming from the session in the next few weeks! Here I decided to be all galaxy-themed, as…

Moscow and Margarita

Have you read The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov? It’s a precious gift I received when I was a teenager by my Russian friend and it’s always been a favourite book of mine since then. A fantasy novel that is also a political satyre of Moscow in the 1930s, it features the devil, a…

Interlude with the vampire

Back in September, my friend Joël Lamotte and I went to the beautiful Parc de Sceaux in the south suburbs of Paris to take some pictures. The Park was designed by André le Nôtre (he created the Versailles gardens as well by the way) at the end of the 17th century. The then castle and…

The Wish Shop

Let’s go a little curio, just in time for Halloween! If you have read the previous articles, Karou’s wishbone and Chimaera’s Hamsas, you will have learnt about Karou, Laini Taylor’s character from Daughter of Smoke and Bone. Karou happens to have the Chimaera Brimstone for a father figure. This is the last set of pictures…

Metamorphosis

The previous articles focused quite a lot on some concepts like Dreams and Chaos, loosely connected to insects like moths and butterflies. This one will be all about metamorphosis… Are you ready for the transformation? The other winged insect I was wearing in the Canary Wharf photo session with Maciej is the dragonfly. This skirt…

Chaos Theory

You might have heard of the butterfly effect, maybe from the movie, which I must admit here I didn’t like that much. It’s an aspect of chaos theory, that takes the metaphorical example of how a tornado might have been influenced much earlier by a butterfly flapping its wings somewhere else. It shows that from slightly…

The Muse of Dreams

Recently, my friend Maciej Żywioł came to London and we decided quite spontaneously to go take pictures in Canary Wharf. All pictures in this article have been taken by Maciej. I know the setting below is quite reminiscent of Hamlet’s character Ophelia, my “nicknamesake” if I might say so. However, Ophelia is asleep here, she’s dreaming next…
