The Photo Diary // July 2016


Time flies by so fast and I can't believe it's time to reflect on July.

It was productive month for me, the one I will remember for a long time. That's because we had fantastic holiday and sailed on a tall ship for several days, discovered new city- Antwerp, which I immediately fell in love with, had few stunning photo shoots and I continued to be surprised by the beauty of London, this month I discovered few lovely places in town I've never known before.

I have finally finished working on the third in a series of portraits inspired by Ancient Mythology. It's the Roman goddess of grains and agriculture - 🌾 Ceres🌾. Fun fact- the word cereal derived from her name :)This video-sketch was taken on a spot few minutes before we wrapped up the photo shoot.

The Kruzentshtern

is a four-masted barque that was built in 1926 at Geestemünde in Bremerhaven, Germany as the Padua (named after the Italian city). She was surrendered to the USSR in 1946 as war reparation and renamed after the early 19th century Baltic German explorer in Russian service, Adam Johann Krusenstern (1770–1846). She is now a Russian sail training ship.

For few days we were out in the sea, under the sails... Truly unforgettable experience!

My first ever video portrait as an art project which will become a part of a series of portraits inspired by Ancient Mythology (read more).  These are just few snapshots from the shoot. Can't wait to actually get my hands into the editing process.


Tall Ship Festival in Antwerp.

Antwerpen, Antwerp, Amberes, Antuérpia … A city with many names and faces. The city of Rubens, a primary diamond trading centre, an international fashion city, Europe’s second largest port and a culinary trend-setter. Antwerp really is a pocket-sized metropolis, full of fascinating contrasts. The city is praised for its amazing history and its contemporary creative vibe. Although Antwerpers may be a bit a-typical, they are known for their hospitality. The port of Antwerp is a good example of this hospitality. Gere people from all over the world meet and work together. For centuries, Antwerp has been the home port of 174 nationalities.

London never stops to amaze me. Every time I explore the streets of London I find something new. That's always the case. Loved the walk with the  @welovetobrunch bunch around the Fitzrovia and Primrose Hill.
