Last year I spent a week in Japan and had the most enchanting time. Every day, I just went walking around Kyoto trying to find those amazing little gardens. I wish I could have stayed another month. Michael Kenna seems to be very fortunate. He managed to travel to japan a few years in a row and has some outstanding imagery.

Before you go to Josef Hoflehner's website, maybe you want to grab a cup of coffee, a biscuit or two and a lot of time. Josef has so many amazing folios, you'll want to spent a long time there. I had a hard time to decide which series was my favourite, but "Expect delays" was rather fitting. Ohhh how I would love to own one of these prints. Even a small/tiny one.

As a designer I am obsessed with paper. Especially old books found in libraries, or bought for their binding, cover and paper colouring. Below are a few images I took a while ago, but I hope to be able to upload the new images soon as well.

I think saturday has to be my favourite day. A day to enjoy a long breakfast, read, play chess, catch up with friends and generally take time to do everything a bit slower. Looking for new photographers for next week I came upon Alexey Titarenko and was absolutely overjoyed by his timeless photography, that I had to post him straight away. The images below are from his series "Black & White Magic of St. Petersburg" (1995-1999).
When I came upon Jennilee Marigomen "wabi sabi" - nothing lasts, nothing is finished, nothing is perfect - series I just had to agree. Here are some lovely images. Wabi-sabi represents a comprehensive Japanese world view or aesthetic centered on the acceptance of transience. She also has a blog where she dedicates a song for her daily image as lovely background music.

I have been dreaming about running away for a little holiday for a couple of days now. Today I came across Palmer Davis on flak photo and was smitten with the simple holiday feeling. Now I wish I could go and experience the "italian light" myself.....

Last week I came across Ada Augustyniak. Below you find some of her lovely & soft images from her series "i want to live in the light until i become transparent". Check out her "wild winter" images - they sure make me miss having snow around.
