Bonjour Paris

I'm heading to Paris next week and the excitement is mounting.  Looking forward to the possibilities of shooting those "defining moments" as the late Henri Cartier-Bresson so poignantly captured in his photographs.  It is simply wonderful how everyone gives you their 'must-see' and 'must-visit' spots when they hear that you are going.  But as a lovely woman at the yoga studio said "part of the fun is discovering your own favourite places and making your own's Paris, and everything is a feast for the senses!"  I couldn't agree more! À Bientôt!

a stop motion moment

Angela Kohler is a Los Angeles based photographer and artist who's captivating pieces are simply stunning!  Her photos have a genuine, unstaged feel to them and her illustrations are so delightful.  Designing fortune teller tokens, making stop motion shorts, shooting fashion photography ~ she is an artist through and through!  

I stumbled upon this stop motion film that she made with her artist/ photographer boyfriend Ithyle on Lobster and Swan.  It has completely inspired me!
 The video was created in collaboration with Alison Sudol from A Fine Frenzy (who also stars in it) and was a compilation of everything that inspires them.  Flea market finds, vintage clothing, musical elements (by Alison) and lots of creativity!  An illuminating film of play, magic and beauty.

Also, take some time to browse through Angela's portfolio and I am sure you too will fall in love.

xoxo  love,
