A symbol of steadfastness, perseverance, and resilience in Chinese brush painting.
I’ve been learning Chinese brush painting since I got back from my first trip to China. There is a very emotional and spiritual story behind, long story short, I hiked up to the temple of Guanyin and after having a chat with her she gifted me with a long lost inspiration to grab my brush and create something. That journey also inspired me to take photography onto another level, so I thought it was time to combine my passion for both arts into one creative project to pay my gratitude to the Goddess who gave me this very precious gift. Here’s the first image of the series, “The three friends of winter” which is representing steadfastness, perseverance, and resilience in Chinese brush painting.

When I arrived at Leicester Square this morning, I assumed there was no chance to see the New Year parade… So once again, I went behind the scenes and enjoyed the morning sun in a not yet busy Chinatown.
Happy New Year!

Continuing my vintage series with one of my childhood icons, Mata Hari.
I’m finding vintage photographs very, very impressive for many reasons. They are graceful in their simplicity, there’s a lot of work put in them, the artists mastered the lightings (so much to learn from them!) and the models had that strong personality that makes you want to stare at their photographs for ever.
On the day we had the Madame Renarde photo session with my beautiful friend, Adrienn, we managed to shoot 3 sessions in just one afternoon. She was an amazing model, perfect for this character as well. Can’t wait to share the whole series.
