Summer’s last sunset

October 27, 2011


Here are a few photo’s from our last summer-like day a few weeks back.  Tora and I took a stroll around Christianshavn and then into Christania where there were lots of people taking in the festivities for its 40th birthday.








Tal Uf Tal Ab, Robert Frank

October 19, 2011

Recently browsing one of my favorite London book sellers (Magma Books), I purchased a small photo collection titled Tal Uf Tal Ab by Robert Frank.  He is well known for his lifetime in film and photography, including his infamous Rolling Stones tour documentary (link), his photo collection The Americans and work with the likes of Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue.

To my surprise , I found in his biography that he chose to settle down in Mabou, Cape Breton Island (my home).  In Tal Uf Tal Ab, he captures little bits of his life in Cape Breton and New York.

Sunday was a quiet day, but full of golden Autumn light.  My morning started with a stroll through Frederiksberg Have:





with music that moved me:

Inspiration: Bottega Veneta + Tomas Maier

October 1, 2011


I have for some time been drawn to Bottega Veneta’s aesthetique and was fascinated with creative director Tomas Maier when I first read an interview with him in The New Yorker earlier this year.   Titled Just Have Less, Maier speaks about his change of direction for the brand since 2001, stripping away the unnecessary and creating an inconspicuous, logo-less appeal.  I am particularly fond of the autumn/winter 2011/2012 campaign, rich colours and textures.

I can highly recommend Bottega Veneta’s campaign collection titled The Art of Collaboration which showcases works by Palazzo Papadopoli, Annie Leibovitz and Lord Snowdon to name a few.   This campaign was shot by Palazzo Papadopoli in Venice:
