toro y moi



hear: still sound by toro y moi (official video shot on super 8 camera by steve daniels)

apart from the fact that the aircon died for about half time of the show, their live performance was so much fun. i still can't get enough of this song and it keeps playing over and over in my head. and doesn't this video make you want to dance?

four different countries, four different languages, and they are all really well shot, beautiful cinematography and typography too. love it so much, this is what i call great advertising!

district dining / train station


surfers at bondi beach, on australia day


chinatown, it's the year of rabbit!

i finally got my first film roll from diana mini developed! i'm only happy with less than half of the results i got but that's ok, it's all about trials and errors and that's the fun part right! can't wait to shoot my second roll and experiment more. i think next time i'm going to try the half frame shots. see some more of my diana mini shots on my flickr set

for those of you lomo enthusiasts, i do have to share with you these two awesome blogs: diana mini love and hello holga. if you have any tips and tricks or feedback or experiences or links to share please do leave me a comment, i'm a newbie and want to explore more! who would have thought plastic cameras could be so cool?

elle fanning





see: somewhere. and elle fanning photographed by steven pan for interview magazine.

finally went to see the movie at beautiful sydney open air cinema last night and i really enjoyed it. it's sofia coppola's typical movies with the stillness, photographical, non-dialog scenes which i think bring out the emotional moments more. and there are just a few scenes of randomness that just made me laugh. have you seen it yet? oh, and elle fanning is just so so pretty.

jo elaine




see: fashion shots from collaboration between jo elaine and lukimages, based in indonesia.

these are a few shots they've done for dewi magazine issue january 2011. all of them are amazing, but i have to say my favourites are the ones that didn't get published. so anyway, jo elaine (who is the stylist behind these nice spreads) is a childhood friend from my primary school. and we met again on facebook after many many years. nice work elaine, so glad to know that you're doing well!

sleepy fawn



see: waldeinsamkeit by ashley moe, based in minneapolis, USA.

it's a beautiful illustration book and this talented young lady has installed it in a pretty wooden box with a music box. apparently waldeinsamkeit is the german word for "the feeling of being alone in the woods". in the hot hot days in sydney where the wind just feels like a giant hairdryer blows to your face in maximum heat, this just makes me smile. her blog sleepy fawn is just enchanting.
