The Photodiarist!

Allright people, here's what I was talking about last week: The New-York based groovy photographer behind "The Photodiarist" let me interview her! So here's an exclusive insight in the world's future Sartorialist...

First of all, how would you describe your photography aesthetic?

I feel most comfortable and in my "zone" as a street photographer. I take photos of whatever interests me in that moment. I never go out with a plan or a preconceived idea about the kind of photos that I want to take. Sometimes I come home with 400 shots, and at other times, 10. I rely quite a bit on my feelings (and less on rules) when taking a picture, but I do ask myself "why" and "what" during the course of taking and processing photos. "Why do I want to capture this moment and what about it do I want to portray?" I like to experiment, so I do end up deleting a ton of shots that just don't work. But better to delete than to never explore. I prefer black and white to color but I am trying to get back into color photography a bit more!

Do you look up/get inspired by any known streetstyle photographer out there?

I LOVE the streetstyle photography and writings of Garance Dore. And who doesn't enjoy the Sartorialist, Altamira and Jak & Jil. Another cool streetstyle blog that I just found is Swagger360. For pure street photography (not so much street style), I like Markus Hartel. But I am inspired by the masters of photo-journalism -- Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, Dorothy Lange and Robert Frank. Image and video hosting by TinyPic Image and video hosting by TinyPic

What do you adore about NYC?

The diversity of its people, places and things to do; the energy; the honesty, drive and creativity of New Yorkers; my apartment, the shopping and the fact that I can get something great to eat at any time of the day or night. Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Describe inspiration in 3 words...

Emotion. Travel. The Story.

What makes you smile?

Being around the people I love and whose company I enjoy, the start of the weekend or a vacation and almost every post written by Garance Dore. Image and video hosting by TinyPic

If I take a look inside your bag, what will I find?

Definitely a camera. Often, a book. Scarlett Empress lipstick by Nars. My new Oliver Peoples sunglasses. My wallet. An i-phone. Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Where is the best place to take pictures in NYC?

Without a doubt, its parks. My favorites: union Square, Washington Square Park, Central Park and Bryant Park. Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Favourite movie so far?

The Godfather, Parts I and II. I never tire of watching those movies.

If you could be in any other place right now, where would you be and with whom?

Paris or Marrakech with my best friends. Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Any future projects for your blog?

To get out of my Borough (Manhattan) more and to explore other areas of the city!

Le coeur ouvert à l'inconnu!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic By the way, here's an awsome and very useful tip for any blogger out there. If you can't remember any good title for a random photo, (hum hum, cof, cof), just write a verse from a song you like! :) PS.: I can TOTALLY picture Danny from Igor+André drawing this photo!

School starts tomorrow and I am FREAKING OUT right now, (as you have probably already noticed with the excessive use of CapsLock in the title), I feel exactly the same as Phoebe Buffay in that episode where she believes she's going to jail: "No, I am NOT GOING BACK TO THAT HOLE!". Oh well, here are some pretty and completely random pictures to chear things up a little bit...

Isn't she lovely?

No, I'm not talking about Stevie Wonder's song. Instead I am showing you guys Nina Ricci's adorable new ad with Jessica Stam!

As Chandler Bing would say, "Could this editorial BE any better?". Well... First of all, this 60's Yoko Ono/Woodstocky aura in it is just delightful... And besides, the styling is exquisite! So, no Chandler, this editorial could not BE any better!
