Ever since I’ve bought my Mac I sort of stopped using my old laptop that I would insanely overused. It has gotten to the point that I would not switch it off and till this day it runs so slow due to the amount of stuff I have in there, documents, articles, stories, mood boards and of course images. That laptop was my first private laptop that I got at 16 from my parents and as excited I was to finally have my own laptop gosh was I excited about having an access to that camera that was inside that 18inch device! It was a weird feeling, sure I had a digital camera that at that time I didn’t use besides occasional photo shoots with my friend Klaudia. I mean on that camera inside my laptop I could take timed pictures and it wasn’t until today I’ve released that these were the real days when I really found my passion for creative direction, styling and photography. And photography is definitely a passion of mine that I’ve always enjoyed and it could be fashion, portrait or close up. I love the light, the shadows and colours, or lack of them.
There’s this certain satisfaction that you can really visually communicate on what’s going inside of your mind. Show it to the world on the computer screen, paper or even a canvas. I remember always enjoying looking at black and white photography as well as taking pictures in monochromatic way. There’s a certain kind of depth and a feeling to the image, it almost feels like the image has feelings that can be seen and felt but it’s audience. Theres this melancholy to it, the way the shade and light look in black white is just so poetic! I love how the lack of colour, which I find can be bit chaotic at times, can show much more. You’re eyes aren’t concentrated on colour. Your brain isn’t trying to process whenever one colour belongs to the warm family or is the cold one. Than again I love how much colour can represent when it comes to digital visualisation. And with this weird throwback “photo shoot” haha I’ve wanted to introduce you to a new part of Rock this Runway which is “Photography” I am excited in sharing with you snaps I’ve taken over the years, planned or not. I hope you will enjoy these images, even thou they aren’t the highest quality and you can see my messy old, old room, that room of 16 year old who so badly wanted to find a way for self expression. I’m not sure is she still found it. But she’s still looking, well at least her 21 year old self.
