Metro 2019

I know this was actually shot in November 2018, but I thought this title would make more sense as we’re in, you know, 2019. Isabelle Touyarou, a photographer whose work you might have seen on my previous articles inspired by the Master and Margarita, Russian sci-fi or Moscow street art, brought me on an incredible journey through…

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…

Chimaera’s Hamsas

This outfit is heavily inspired by Karou from Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor, like my previous article, Karou’s wishbone. This is part 2 of the Waterloo photoshoot with Marco Vinagre. Remember when I wrote that she had other powers than using wishes? Karou has eyes on her palms, but they aren’t tattoos though,…

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…

Dragons of London

We (Olaf from capturingemotions and me) started this photo session at the same location than the “Those Red Lips”, a London ruined Church Garden. If you have read the previous article, you know I wrote a lot about Dracula. Well, Dracula comes from the word Dracul, which means Dragon. You might know the Hogwarts motto…

Those Red Lips

One summer evening in London, a ruined church and its garden hosted a new photo session with Olaf Szmidt from Capturing Emotions. Since I’m supposed to be a time traveling vampire, a reference to Dracula is only fitting, and this churchyard-like location might have been on the vampire’s list when he was living in London….
