I can't believe I actually went through with it.
It's red. It's really red!

Just below the surface

Susanna Majuri is an amazing Finnish photographer who speaks to my heart.

Her images grouped with her thoughts and concepts are just magical...

'I suggest: we can be multiple. Touch your enviroment and it

will show itself as fantastic. People are unpredictable. They

are male and female at the same time. Eyes whisper sparks.

The water is the most remarkable. It carries bodies. Water is

colour. The shimmer and the deep green. My challenge is to

see the reality in a non-traditional light. When I am shooting

pictures, I have a premonition that something strange is about

to happen.

I follow the logic of colours, when I combine places, people

and objects. To me the most important quality of photography

is it´s capability to convey emotions.

I suggest: imagine the details a bit further. Who is drawing

trees in to the pond. When you touch the surface of the house

it turns out to be your companion.

I throw myself into a fictive reality in the shootings. My heart

beats wildly when I can feel the presence of surprises. When

you´re in love, but bid farewell to the channel. You forgot the

ship and it sinks. When the fall is unreachable behind the grey


I want to narrate feelings like in novels. The reader of images

gets a chance to handle her lost and encounters. There is a

place for danger. Did you die when you saw the shadow of the

bird? The language is a map and draws around us, unknown and

familiar.I believe in a single image. It breaths strong.'

Where did your mind go?

Tuesday drawing class,
My mind has been so mixed up lately,
It was good to concentrate on the task at hand.
It was very difficult and frustrating at times,
but I'm happy with the end result and thought I'd share my sketch with you.

Nothing Brings me Down

Red for adventure. The brunette is sacrificing her colour and giving up her tendancies toward the 'brown and nuetral pallete' for something more outrageous. Will it be an epic fail?
stay tuned....

The Filters of the Mind

'Uni assignment'
Please help me short list :)
The filters of the mind is a metaphorical exploration of the human condition.
Blurred and scewed in the water under ripples everything is obscured. We are such insignificant forms of mass in comparison to the rest of the universe. Amongst our own worlds we get caught up and consumed, when in reality we are just apart of everything else, repeating anothers mistakes and rewriting history.

And the boys go on and on

Living without love. Is it possible? Does the quality of life diminish?
I can't stand the quiet or white walls.
Things are different now. Does that mean i have to change?
welcome to my new world. it's fresh, clean and white. like a hospital.
Drawing class is amazing. I think I'll improve, I can feel it.
Await my scratchings.
