fashion photography: the story in 180 pictures* – ÂŁ39.95

 

fashion photography: the story in 180 pictures is a very striking book by eugénie shinkle who is a lecturer in photographic theory and criticism.

after the intro, the book delves right into things and shares (fashion) photography beginning in the 1860’s. the book is separated into decades, from the 1860’s to 1920’s, then in decades right up until the 2010’s. a variety of photographic styles is covered throughout, and i’m happy to see there are quite a few women photographers in here. a lot of art/photographic history books tend to leave out women, which is totally remiss as women are an important part of art/photography/general history and they more than deserve to be discussed and applauded.

snapshots of my week – 15th october

snapshots by

pink wall with tree shadows

this hasn’t been my week. agonising tooth pain, food poisoning, severe pain and fatigue, an injury and the worst menstrual cramps i’ve ever had. all in all, ouch. and not even the worst week in my year, ha! yet somehow i’ve remained in a good mood and not let it get me down. there are times when i would have let all that sink me, but for some reason not this time. i wish i could have that sort of strength more often, but hey, i’ve learned to take what i can get.

london retro barbs

london retro barbs glasses

london retro barbs glasses â„… glasses direct

i love a pair of glasses that have a bit of quirk and character, especially if they have a vintage style.

if i was a bit more outgoing i’d love to try some that were some crazy colours or unusual shapes, but the london retro barbs are the perfect mix of vintage cat eye (that little flick, so cute!) and something quite modern and wearable. the frame is quite bold, but not over the top, and the look of them is feminine without being cutesy.

i love the name of these, as they reminded me of barb from stranger things (which is back soon for a second series, wahoo!) though she didn’t wear glasses like these. saying that, shannon purser, who plays barb could TOTALLY rock these.

caboodle magazine illustration by laura redburn

a little while ago, i had the pleasure of contributing to caboodle magazine again. if you remember, i had done so before in their 4th issue. this time it was illustrating an article about men (more specifically justin bieber) judging women who love themselves more than them. self love and being happy in yourself is such a big and important thing. it’s not easy and it takes lhard work. there are definitely men out there that want women to be ‘theirs’ and that’s not the behaviour of someone that respects you.
