Horst


Very often I forget how vibrant and full of life London is. Most days i'm so consumed by my journey to work or what I'm doing that I forget to appreciate the beauty around me and the many things to do, places to visit and things to eat here. Sometimes you need an afternoon with a good friend to get you thinking about the little things, so I did just that with Sherida. I always enjoy going out with her because she is what I consider a rainbow in human form. She's so passionate about her craft, her future and just about everything she puts her hand to and it's so wonderful to be around such a delightful person! 

The Victoria and Albert museum is always a good place to go. It's free to go in, though some exhibitions you'll need to pay for, but i think it's such a beautifully peaceful and inspiring place to go. After taking sneaking photographs of each other and wandering around the museum talking about a mixture of art materials, boys and aperture, we went to the Horst exhibition. Vin-X had kindly given me two tickets to check it out, and I can only describe the work as phenomenal and highly inspiring. Each photo was imbued with such softness and sensuality and I loved that they lacked the static sterileness of most high fashion photography today.  We often forget, due to how accessible photography is nowadays, how much work went into each piece. From the annotations, to Horst's sketchbooks and later work with Vogue, there was no doubt how passionate this man was about this work and it was beautiful to see. It has really inspired me to be more hard-working in regards to my more creative pursuits and even Architecture. Although the exhibition ended today (boo!) i'd highly recommend reading up on Horst P. Horst. 

Hope you've had a wonderful weekend, and a very happy new year to you!

  4. really good pictures :) Same as you I have to admit that many times I forget I live in London, so I don't take advantage of everything around us. Today decided to go for a walk in Soho | Picadilly and it was really nice - except for the cold!

  7. Beautiful pictures! I agree that sometimes we are always on the go that we forget to stop and just enjoy the little things around us.

  9. Great post and reminder. The fact that (for the most part) the museums in London are free can make for a lovely morning or afternoon. Even museums that I didn't think I'd be interested have surprised me and kept me wandering for several hours. Thanks!
