For the next 10 months, I’ll be living in the most avant-guard corner of Europe: Berlin. Here the bars are candlelit, the clubs are hidden and the people don’t read fashion magazines – although they could definitely write for them. Like the graffiti, Berlin style is individualized. Fashion is a creative process and the people here find inspiration in everything from Karl Lagerfeld to the history beaten streets.
And me? I’m inspired by it all. I believe in living fast, breathing slow, and prefer the view through a frame. This city is going through a period of rebirth – It’s full of bohemian artists and young dreamers creating their own versions of paradise. I have never been in a place that makes me want to constantly create so much.
When I’m not making my own, I try to capture the Berlin art scene on film. Luckily I’ve spent the last 4 months Interning as a fashion Photographer for Brooklyn-based Bright Young Things (http://www.youbrightyoungthings.com/bright-young-things/), so i’ve had a summer in NYC to get over the fear of approaching strangers for their picture.
Though I’m sure I’lll be sharing pictures from my travels throughout europe, I love this new city of mine and I’m excited to share its brilliance with you.
Expect great things Philadelphia. I plan to take my camera on the many adventures to come.
Love from Berlin,
