Art has always been an important part of my life; from classical ballet, to photography, fashion and writing. As far as I can remember, I’ve been surrounded by creative people, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. My friend Eva sent me this illustration inspired by an outfit I posted recently and I absolutely love it! It reminds me of one-line drawings, but with a unique twist. Eva is extremely talented and inspiring, you should have a look at her work.
On another note, I finally had my film photos developed this weekend. I was using my dad’s old Minolta X-700 with 35 mm film. Originally, I was inspired by Lizzy Hadfield’s ‘My Week on 35 mm’ series but only took a few photos at the beginning of the summer so the idea slightly failed. I regret not taking more because they turned out so well (but still have plenty of film at home I can use). On the left you can see some of my favourites that I took in Montréal, Oslo and London. With digital photography we have a slight tendency to be over-perfectionists but film photography allows for a certain detachment which makes the pictures perfectly-imperfect.
Finally, this afternoon I attended the representation of the “Portrait de femmes” concert at the Montreal Symphony House which was part of the I Musici Montréal concerts. It was my second time watching a live orchestra perform and this one was particularly interesting. The concert combined music and readings from classical texts by Virginia Wolf or Shakespeare. Classical music is calming and so beautiful to watch, I highly recommend it.
