p a r i s

Paris is definitely my cup of tea... so much calmer than New York. It takes time to get used to the lack of delis and 24/7 take-away food places though...

first signs of spring are already on the streets

Paris: Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature

Surprisingly, the first museum I visited here in Paris was a museum of hunting and nature.

Even if you don't have any particular interest in the subject, you will be impressed by the breathtakingly beautiful rooms filled with paintings from 18-19th century, photos, sculptures, taxidermy, collection of arms and other objects used for hunting throughout history. 
Besides temporary collection, they also showcase some work by contemporary artists embracing the same theme.

Always on the run

I know I haven been such a lousy blogger but a lot is going on. Since my last post, I've left New York, made a quick stop in London and landed in Paris. Just wanted to remind you that I am still instantly updating my Tumblr with iPhone photos I take throughout days and of course Instagram. Feel free to follow!

A new story for is out now - Strip away the artifice and discover authenticity. 

I shot it back in December in Paris, actually in a suburb of Paris in Turkish baths. It was a surreal place with hidden saunas and washing rooms in the basement. Amazing that places like this exist and people still go there on daily basis.

in Brooklyn for Creem Magazine

Just in time I got back to New York, Creem magazine published an interview and a story I shot here last time. Check out more here -

Anni Jurgenson is no stranger to the fashion industry. When she was just 15, she was scouted in her native Estonia thanks to the popularity of her fashion blog, Style Hurricane. However, Anni operates on both sides of the industry; nearly five years after her discovery, she not only models and blogs, but she also designs one-of-a-kind, avant grade ear cuffs. We talked to Anni about her designs, her inspirations, and what’s on her radar for the future.

The other day I was cleaning up my computer's hard drive and found this little gem from the year 2011. It was just the moment before sunset in Austin, Texas where we were shooting an editorial for Teen Vogue
