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

This is an illustrated, speculative and auto-fictional, short story! I hope you’ll like it! 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…

The Garden of Worlds

A faint clap of thunderClouded skiesPerhaps rain comesIf so, will you stay here with me? Yukari in The Garden of Words by Shinkai Makoto, from Man’yōshū, Book 11, verse 2,513 1 – The Garden of Worlds, part 1 As the clouds start to gather ominously over me, I walk faster on this forest lane. I…

Evanescent

Bones Bones, Baphomet horns and black lipstick – My very visual way to represent Death and what my little six year old neighbour called a “belated Halloween costume – I’m not scared!!”. I wasn’t trying to scare anyone, but it’s true that Halloween is supposed to be a moment when the bridges between the worlds…

Redbubble prints

Do you know Redbubble? It’s a good place to look for original designs, as artists can upload their stuff and you can have them printed as posters, but also skirts or bath mats!… I looked at their FAQ before registering, they seem ethical, and the prints are of very good quality. My account there is…

Rogue And Wolf – Ambassador

So, I’m now an Ambassador for Rogue And Wolf! It’s a brand that has awesome designs, and vegan shoes! What’s not to like! It’s true that now, I’m a lot into buying less new things, and doing more second hand shopping (and also, I just have more than enough clothes in general 🙂 ) for…

Goth Dryads

For our FIRST EVER model collaboration, Alexis and I went to Richmond Park to meet the talented photographer Marina Bratunova (Also https://www.instagram.com/gimba_bra/) This time we decided to go full goth and added a few Horns in the process as a nod to the forest. Alexis and I visited Saisai Camden the day before, where we…

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…
