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…

This Corrosion

This October, I was in Poland for some conferences including 4Developers in Kraków. There, I had the pleasure to catch up with friends old and new. Maciej Żywioł, who photographed me in Canary Wharf for some previous articles (The Muse of Dreams,  Chaos Theory and Metamorphosis), photographed me again but this time in his amazing…

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…

Karou’s Wishbone

I’ve been dreaming quite a while of doing a photo session inspired by Karou, the main character of Daughter of Smoke and Bone, and my dream has come true thanks to Marco Vinagre. Thanks to Kat Von D’s Satellite Blue eyebrow pomade, my eyebrows and my hair (Manic Panic’s Bad Boy Blue) finally match, making…

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…
