1. A good image is created by a state of grace. Grace expresses itself when it has been freed from conventions, free like a child in his early discovery of the reality. The game is then to organize the rectangle.

  6. Anonymous said: who are some of your favourite vintage/old photographers and do you know any old photography blogs?

    Hi anon! :) Thanks for the question!

    It’s so hard for me to choose one photographer that is my favourite also because I keep discovering new ones all the time.

    However, some that I like better than others would be the following:

    Cecil Beaton;
    Robert Doisneau;
    Alfred Eisenstaedt;
    Elliott Erwitt;
    Horst P. Horst;
    Alfred Cheney Johnston;
    Vivian Maier;
    Irving Penn;

    As you can see from this, fashion photography is my favourite genre and if I really, really had to choose, I would choose Horst. Mainly because my absolute favourite photo (my icon) is made by him :)

    About other blogs, these are some of old photography (mainly) blogs I am following:

    photographyspast;
    burnedshoes;
    mezzaluna;
    fantomas-en-cavale;
    faciepopuli;
    firsttimeuser

    I unfollowed some that became inactive, and I’m also pretty sure there are more out there, but I’ve never really looked and also I have quite high expectations towards the quality of the blog and their posts.

    That’s all! Have a nice day or evening! :)
